About

The University of Chicago

  • One of the world's premier academic and research institutions, the University of Chicago has driven new ways of thinking since our 1890 founding. Today, UChicago is an intellectual destination that draws inspired scholars to our Hyde Park and international campuses, keeping UChicago at the nexus of ideas that challenge and change the world.
  • Located in one of the world's greatest cities, UChicago is enriched by and invested in the community we call home. We are the second-largest private employer in Chicago. Our talented faculty, physicians, and staff compose a dedicated team committed to the mission of the University.
  • We partner with our South Side neighbors on innovative initiatives with local benefits and replicable outcomes for urban universities everywhere. Meanwhile, our research and ideas have broad impact, crossing borders to drive international conversations. The same is true of our diverse and creative students and alumni, who found businesses, create masterpieces, and win Nobel Prizes.

Thank you for your support!
