Committed to our community
The neighborhoods where we study, work, and live are an integral part of life at the University. This is our community—and we are dedicated to fostering meaningful social change and enhancing the quality of life for all of our neighbors.
Partnering with our neighbors
We work with people and organizations in our community to create opportunities for local residents, small businesses, and nonprofits. To do this, we draw upon our strengths in education, research, and innovation as well as our role as the largest employer on the South Side.
