Centers for Diversityphoto of UIC students
Our six Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change are dedicated to fostering greater acceptance and understanding, ensuring that students make the most of their experiences at UIC.
They affirm UIC's commitment to social change grounded in the principles of inclusion, access, and equity and the collective purpose to expand understanding of the value of cultural diversity and connect diverse assets to find creative solutions for common challenges.
The AACC promotes all African American creative and cultural traditions as well as sponsoring cultural research, cultural programming, student networking, and community outreach programs.
Since 2005, AARCC has worked to support the needs of its Asian American students and faculty, and educate the general campus about this diverse community.
This center strives for a positive atmosphere through educational, cultural, and social programs that will lead to greater retention and advancement of Latino students.
Dedicated to LGBTQA communities, this center provides resources to combat prejudice, misunderstanding, and misinformation about issues of gender identity and sexual/affectional orientation.
In addition to providing individual consultation on issues such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, this office provides training to UIC departments on working more effectively with gender issues.
The Disability Resource Center is committed to providing effective assistance to students with disabilities. The DRC offers a wide range of services including but not limited to eligibility documentation, assistive technology, as well as exam accommodations.
