We accomplish incredible things, and can set bold goals, because of the alumni and friends who give generously to UIC. Take a look at all the ways giving to UIC made an impact in the last fiscal year.
Give Back: The College of Nursing expands its simulation lab thanks to a generous gift from alumna M. Christine Schwartz
This $5 million gift will expand the existing simulation laboratory into a 15,000-square-foot teaching facility, complete with exam rooms, a home-care setting, birthing center and student lounge.
$1.5M matching gift supports College of Engineering's new building
The College is on track to complete its Computing, Design, Research, and Learning Center thanks to E. Eugene Carter's challenge. He matched the first $1.5 million raised. The center will feature active learning spaces and state-of-the-art digital infrastructure to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration among students and faculty.
Please join us to launch an ambitious campaign for UIC and our students and faculty, and celebrate UIC’s commitment to our alumni by formally introducing the new UIC Alumni Association.
