Affirmative Action Statement
The University of Illinois at Chicago strives for diversity reflective of a great urban university. This diversity should not only be evident in our student body but should also extend to our faculty and all levels of administration and staff. We advance this goal through adherence to the principles of equal employment and nondiscrimination in all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, promotion, and development of our employees. Our hiring and employment policies have been devised to promote our affirmative commitment to diversity.
UIC’s commitment to diversity is critical to our mission of advancing access to excellence in academic programs, world-class research, and health care. Diversity in our faculty and at all levels of our workforce will assist UIC in facing the challenges of the city, state, and region and fostering active engagement with the cultural, social, and economic riches of our urban environment.
