Rigorous scholarship is at the heart of everything we do, and our city derives lasting benefits from our innovative ideas and research programs.
Our research collaborations bring our faculty and students together with expert practitioners in our adjacent communities. By working alongside civic partners who provide experience-based insights, we achieve a stronger understanding of pressing urban issues and develop pragmatic, thoughtful policies to help solve them.
As part of our commitment to fruitful research collaborations, we work to promote our results to the broadest possible audience, here in Chicago and far beyond, with the goal of achieving lasting positive impact.
The solutions we develop here in Chicago have the potential to transform the lives of people in cities around the world.
