Scientific Advancement, Intercultural Understanding, and Social Justice
Diversity in Academic Programs Heading link
Actively engaged in relevant research with local and global impact, LAS faculty develops new technologies and examines alternative ways of thinking and acting that promote scientific advancement, intercultural understanding, and social justice.
Programs such as the LAS Undergraduate Research Initiative allow students to work side-by-side with faculty mentors on transformative disciplinary and cross-disciplinary research in the natural sciences, the social sciences, interdisciplinary studies, and the humanities.
Students are also encouraged to explore research opportunities with faculty by exploring programs sponsored by the UIC Office for Undergraduate Research.
