UIC Advancement connects and engages alumni and friends with your university.

Our alumni community makes us proud.  Within it we find not only infinitely differing backgrounds, but also extraordinary talent and tenacity, and a lifelong commitment to working hard, doing good and giving back.

It’s important to us that you engage, with UIC and one another, in ways that are meaningful to you.  For some it’s volunteering or mentoring; for others it’s financial support.

Tell us how you want to connect.  We’ll make it happen.
