UIC Impact

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff are the corner stones to UIC meeting its commitment to 100% engagement. It is through your programs, your service, and your time that our students will be able to dive deeper into learning more about themselves, their chosen fields, and the larger world they live in. It is also through you that our students will be best prepared for their initial steps after their time at UIC.

To be considered a UIC Impact engagement opportunity, programs at minimum must:

  • Identify a least one of the listed Areas of Concentration
  • Require a commitment of at least 50 hours of engagement from participants
  • Include a reflective component that helps participants make meaning of the experience (Reflections must feature complex synthesis of information and connections of the engagement experience to career goals, future plans, or societal impact.)
