Migrant Resource Hub


Over 20,000 asylum seekers have arrived in Chicago since August 2022, most of whom remain housed in temporary shelters or police stations. The UIC Migrant Resource Hub is designed to inform the campus of the different initiatives happening at or in collaboration with UIC to assist newly arriving asylum-seekers as well as to connect UIC community members with city and state-wide sources of information and resources related to the asylum-seekers. Learn about our engagement and most recent developments on this page.

Beginning in November 2023, non-profit organizations will be organizing large-scale workshops to help thousands of Southwestern Border Migrants apply for employment authorization and Temporary Protected Status. Volunteers are needed. Spanish or Haitian Creole bilingual skills are particularly helpful but not necessary. Locations will vary but will mostly be at the Metcalfe Building, 77 W Jackson Blvd in downtown Chicago. Volunteers should be prepared to spend 4-5 hours at each workshop. Shorter sessions may be possible. This is ideal for student volunteers. If interested, please sign up!
