ENGAGING UCHICAGO STUDENTS IN CHICAGO
CHICAGO STUDIES engages the intellectual, creative, and civic energies of University of Chicago undergraduates in the life of the diverse communities that make up our world-class city. A partnership between The College (via the Program on the Global Environment) and the Office of Civic Engagement via University Community Service Center (UCSC), Chicago Studies incorporates a range of opportunities for members of the University community to encounter and learn with Chicagoans from all walks of life. In so doing, we facilitate the development of reciprocal, respectful collaborations between campus and city that empower students in the College both to deeper critical inquiry and also to more impactful responses to complex and systemic issues in Chicago, and by extension in cities around the world.
