What and who is WIU-QC?

  • First of all, we one of the two campuses that comprise Western Illinois University, a nationally ranked and _______ institution. (Click here to learn everything about our main campus in Macomb, IL).
  • We are a small, friendly commuter campus located in Moline, IL, literally right along the banks of the Mississippi River — lots of times during class you can look out and see riverboats and barges slogging by and gulls circling in the sky. (You also sometimes have to fight ducks for sidewalk space.)
  • We’re the first and ONLY public higher-education institution in the Quad Cities! But who are we, and what do we do here?
