UChicago and Civic Engagement

The University of Chicago is shaped and inspired by the city of Chicago. 

Our growing partnership with our neighbors has the potential to enhance the quality of life and economic development of the South Side and the global reach of this vibrant city. Read more about our civic partnerships and how UChicago devotes the research and creative thinking of some of the nation’s top scholars, as well as millions of dollars in investment in recent years, to support local schools, jobs, health care, arts, housing, and public safety.
