Uchicago Basketball Teams Engage With Nearly 1,000 South Side Students


At UChicago, our commitment to building strong, productive partnerships with our neighbors is shared across the whole university.

Every division and school across our university is engaged with our community, in ways large and small. We work to deepen our connections with our neighbors and build new partnerships that will benefit all of us, here on the South Side and throughout Chicago.

We welcome our neighbors’ input and insights into the issues that matter most to our shared communities and understand that ongoing, open dialogue is essential to forming effective collaborations.  Our community partners inform our priorities and shape our actions as we work together to create positive change.

Our combined efforts draw upon our strength as an economic anchor and on the power of education, research, and innovation to create real, lasting impact and opportunity, in all communities.
