Climate Change in a Connected World, an LAS Research Symposium

Featuring keynotes, panel discussions, and workshops by climate change scientists and activists.


As the largest undergraduate college at UIC, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) offers a diverse community of actively engaged scholars and students across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, as well as interdisciplinary and pre-professional areas of study.


Here, you can choose from more than 40 liberal arts and science majors and minors, compete for internships, study abroad, and more. Through first-year seminars, in-depth career services, and tutoring and learning centers for language, math, writing, and science, we offer a supportive learning community that helps students achieve their goals. Every student has access to a personal academic advisor beginning with New Student Orientation and continuing until Graduation.

  • Discovery Conduct original research under faculty mentorship through the LAS Undergraduate Research Initiative (LASURI)
