Advancing Racial Equity
UIC’s Advancing Racial Equity (ARE) initiative is a response designed to address the institutional and structural racism that impacts our campus and our neighboring communities.
Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change
The seven Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change are a collaborative group that aims to make UIC a welcoming and inclusive place for all students, faculty and staff.
OCC’s focus is to create infrastructure, institute channels to improve cross-campus communication and collaboration, as well as facilitate a unified philosophy and a set of values for community practices and partnerships.
The Office of Community Relations works to build and maintain relationships between UIC and the communities it serves.
Partnerships for Anti-racist Campus Transformation
Partnerships for Anti-racist Campus Transformation is a collaboration of members from across campus focused on taking immediate action to meet the needs of our community partners as they support direct relief and recovery efforts in areas of our Chicagoland community most affected by COVID-19.
