Our research, conversations, and aspirations are shaped by, and contribute to, the great city of Chicago. Students and faculty engage the city as a subject for inquiry through our Chicago Studies program, and Chicago’s diverse population and thriving business and cultural sectors give us rich opportunities for research, hands-on learning, volunteering, and work experience. Based in Hyde Park on Chicago’s South Side, we engage our community both as scholars and neighbors. Our ambitious partnerships and programs extend to urban education, urban health care, the arts, economic development, business diversity, and public safety. We are not just in Chicago, we are of Chicago, setting a new standard for urban universities.
This is UChicago
Together with its medical center, the University is the second-largest private employer in Chicago and the largest on Chicago’s South Side.
