As an anchor for local neighborhoods and a global center for education, research, and innovation, the University of Chicago partners within our communities to share talents, information, and resources to have a positive impact in Chicago that can be spread to cities around the world.
Through robust partnerships, we invest in Chicago’s mid-South Side across areas such as health, education, economic opportunity, public safety, and the arts.
We take learning beyond our classrooms through programs and initiatives that strengthen local schools and create opportunities for students and professionals.
We support evidence-based research that addresses urban opportunities and challenges and creates models that can be replicated in cities around the globe.
We welcome partnerships to help scale innovations into marketable products, solutions, and start-ups that benefit communities and contribute to economic growth.
