UIC is proud of its Great Cities Commitment program, an initiative that began in 1993 and involves hundreds of committed faculty, students and staff from every UIC college. These individuals partner with government organizations, corporations, and the community to focus on common urban concerns - such as healthcare, education, affordable housing, economic development and transportation. The goal? To support commitment in urban research, so as to improve the quality of life in Chicago and various other cities around the world. As a result of this program, UIC is now one of the premier public research universities in the United States.
