University Of Illinois Chicago

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is a public research university in Chicago, Illinois. Its campus is in the Near West Side community area, adjacent to the Chicago Loop. The second campus established under the University of Illinois system, UIC is also the largest university in the Chicago area, having more than 33,000 students enrolled in 16 colleges.

UIC is classified among "R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity".

UIC competes in NCAA Division I Horizon League as the UIC Flames in sports. The Credit Union 1 Arena (formerly UIC Pavilion) is the Flames' venue for home games.

The University of Illinois at Chicago traces its origins to several private health colleges founded during the late 19th century, including the Chicago College of Pharmacy, which opened in 1859, the College of Physicians and Surgeons (1882), and the Columbian College of Dentistry (1893).

The University of Illinois was chartered in 1867 in Champaign-Urbana, as the state's land-grant university. In exchange for agreeing to the Champaign-Urbana location, Chicago-area legislators were promised that a "polytechnical" branch would open in Chicago. The Chicago-based health colleges affiliated with the University in 1896–97, becoming fully incorporated into the University of Illinois in 1913, as the Colleges of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. Medical education and research expanded in the succeeding decades, leading to the development of several other health science colleges, which were brought together as the Chicago Professional Colleges. In 1935, the first act of newly elected state representative Richard J. Daley was to introduce a resolution calling for the establishment of an undergraduate Chicago campus of the University of Illinois.

UIC is committed to diversity

UIC is among the top five most diverse campuses in the nation and a national leader among urban, public higher education institutions in providing access to underrepresented students. UIC is focused on eliminating disparities in health, education and economic opportunity. Community engagement is a centerpiece of UIC’s urban mission. Faculty, students and staff in every college work with neighborhood, foundation and government partners on a wide range of projects to improve the quality of life in metropolitan areas around the world.

UIC is committed to increasing access to education, employment, programs and services for all and maintaining a barrier-free environment for individuals with disabilities.

UIC’s Disability Resource Center facilitates access for students through consultation with faculty and departmental staff and strives to provide all needed accommodations. Accessible workstations and assistive technology are available on campus through the Academic Computing and Communications Center and the UIC Library. Accessible transportation is also provided.

UIC is pledged to sustainability

As a charter signatory to the integrated climate commitment, UIC has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 40% from 2004 levels by 2030 — and to be carbon-neutral by 2050. Further goals are to become a zero-waste, net-zero-water campus, and a biodiverse campus.

UIC becomes greener every year — through plantings that have led to its designation as a Tree Campus USA each year since 2011 as well as its commitment to LEED-certified buildings, recycling, active transportation and public transit. Bike-sharing stations are conveniently placed throughout the campus, which itself is located near three rail stations.

Sustainability is also incorporated in UIC’s education and research missions. The Office of Sustainability offers students internships and serves as a clearinghouse for information on green jobs. Students can become an Eco-Educator, the office’s volunteer corps for promoting green practices.
