IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC
UIC is purpose built and mission driven.
We are a premier urban research university and a model for diversity and public service in the 21st century. From this stance, we find ourselves uniquely poised to meet the next century in a way no one else can. To personalize medicine; improve urban infrastructure; reduce community disparities and social inequality; unravel the mysteries of the human brain; harness the power of big data; cure devastating diseases; and understand who we are and what we will become. See the impact UIC and each of our colleges and units will make through IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC.
With your participation in IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC, together we can redefine the model for student experience and success, cultivate and empower faculty leaders, drive life-changing discoveries and strengthen connections to our communities.
At the same time, each college and unit is chasing its own ambitious vision to create access for and offer an exceptional experience to tomorrow’s leaders in their fields. All while assembling a faculty of thought leaders and ground breakers who will illuminate young minds while delivering solutions for today’s challenges.
