The University of Chicago is proud that we have called the city of Chicago home for more than 125 years. We are committed to helping meet the challenges that will shape our city in this century and beyond.
Our faculty, students, and staff work with partners across the city every day to advance educational programs; promote health and provide excellent medical care; develop jobs and economic vitality; conduct community-engaged research; serve the cause of public safety; and help build the civic infrastructure our communities need to thrive. These long-term contributions to addressing pressing societal challenges help make UChicago a distinctive member of the Chicago community. Through this work, our university improves the lives of Chicagoans every day.
