Top Standing

UIC is igniting a new standard in education where access and excellence converge. And it shows in our top rankings. We were ranked a top 10 best value and top 25 public university by Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education, third in "Best Bang for the Buck" in the Midwest by Washington Monthly and we have moved up in several of our rankings in US News & World Report. In addition, UIC received the 2020 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award for the fifth time from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. We are proud to create opportunity for students from every culture, race, socioeconomic background and circumstance.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Setting Records

UIC’s work to ensure every hungry mind has a path to study at our great university is proving itself in our enrollment numbers. For the sixth year in a row, we set an enrollment record, topping 33,518 students. “I chose UIC because I saw it as an opportunity to receive an excellent education,” Jaleel Cannon, a freshman accounting major said.

Bright Scholars

Alumna Brenda López Silva MFA '04 was one of four UIC faculty members who received a Fulbright award for teaching and research. Professor Kim D. Ricardo, Associate Professor Nebiyou Tilahun and Associate Professor Federico Waitoller were also recipients of the prestigious award. These are just some examples of the many prominent faculty members at UIC who have a stake in the future of our communities and a passion to serve humanity. Read more.

 
 
 
 

Innovation in Our DNA

Every day, UIC delivers real solutions to the world’s most crucial challenges. The College of Medicine’s new $8.8 million Surgical & Innovation Training Laboratory will help us do just that. “Innovation is an integral piece of what we do at the college of medicine and at UI Health. It’s woven into our DNA. We don’t want to wait for things to happen. We want to make them happen,” College of Medicine Executive Dean Dr. Mark Rosenblatt said. Read more.

 
 
 
 

Grow Our UIC Pride

We think our biggest advantage is our collective strength. That's why we need you—our alumni— to help with a new volunteer opportunity with the Office of Admissions! We are looking for alumni to share their experiences and success stories with admitted students—your participation can help them decide to commit to UIC. If interested, please complete this brief survey, and a member of our team will contact you in the coming weeks.
