In addition to its course offerings, undergraduate research supports, and resources for faculty and course instructors, Chicago Studies regularly co-sponsors para-curricular opportunities to discover, study, and engage with Chicago's diverse communities. A current list of our collaborative, para-curricular offerings (term-specific) can be found on our Events page (http://chicagostudies.uchicago.edu/events - this page will go live for the new academic year in mid-August). We also regularly promote Chicago-focused events and opportunities through our eNewsletter - email us at email@example.com if you would like us to share news of your upcoming program with our audience.
Although we are no longer a programming-focused team effective AY2023-2024, we maintain a programming and events budget that we are able to allocate in the form of small event/series grants. We are especially interested in collaborating with course instructors to create programming that anticipates, advertises, or complements upcoming Chicago-focused classes, but welcome collaborations with other offices, research units, and campus partners. A programming collaboration grant application for events or series can be found here.
If you are interested in developing a program in collaboration with Chicago Studies and/or would like to discuss funding for a future Chicago-focused event or programming series, email Chris Skrable, Chicago Studies' Executive Director, or set up an appointment.
