UIC alumni, friends and students came together on October 28 to officially launch IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC and the new UIC Alumni Association. Watch our video to see the impact UIC has. You can also scroll through our photo gallery to see highlights from the event.

Progress to goal of $750M is $295M — we're already 40 percent there! 


With your participation in IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC, 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.


This is a historic time for UIC. We proudly launched UIC’s first alumni association, which will focus solely on UIC alumni and bring our strong alumni network together to support common goals. Our community is unique in that more than 80 percent of alumni live and work in the Chicago area. This means we can truly join forces to carry the UIC mission and achieve its ambitious goals.

Three outstanding alumni were honored at this year's Alumni Awards. Howard Kaufman (BA '82, LAS) and Jean Ragalie-Carr (BS '83, AHS) both received the Alumni Achievement Award for accomplishments in their respective fields. Daniel Laskin (MS '82, DENT) was this year's Distinguished Service Award recipient for his work at the UIC College of Dentistry. Read more about why they make us #UICProud.
