The Center for Identity + Inclusion creates intentionally diverse and inclusive communities, serving as a bridge builder by engaging students and members of the University community of all backgrounds to ensure personal, academic, and professional growth and success. We strive to foster intercultural engagement and raise the critical consciousness of students and the broader UChicago community, particularly as it relates to the lived experiences of varied racial and ethnic communities.
We strive to create an inclusive and safe community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning students and allies at UChicago. We provide educational opportunities and serve as the hub for LGBTQ student life at the University.
Spiritual Life serves as a destination for all things spiritual and religious at the University of Chicago. We address the complexities of religious encounter in the twenty-first century and provide a space for members of the University community to ask big and small questions about meaning and purpose. We describe ourselves as creative, artistic, passionate, connected, integrative, wholistic, spiritual, fertile, resourceful, welcoming, vibrant, diverse, celebratory!
At UChicago, civic engagement is an institution-wide commitment that draws upon our strength as an economic anchor and on the power of education, research, and innovation to create real, lasting impact and opportunity, in Chicago and beyond.
Jumpstart is a preparation program designed to help students develop the academic and inter-personal skills to navigate law school and become successful legal professionals. The three-day program brings together incoming students from groups traditionally under-represented in the legal profession, from the six Chicago-area law schools before the official orientations at their respective law schools. Through a series of interactive sessions, students confront the challenges that all first-year law students face and learn about the crucial components to a successful and satisfying law school experience. They also learn about important resources and support available to them on an on-going basis.
