The University of Illinois at Chicago traces its origins to several private health colleges founded during the late nineteenth century, including the Chicago College of Pharmacy, which opened in 1859, the College of Physicians and Surgeons (1882), and the Columbian College of Dentistry (1891).[5]

The University of Illinois was chartered in 1867 in Champaign-Urbana, as the state's land-grant university. In exchange for agreeing to the Champaign-Urbana location, upstate legislators were promised that a "polytechnical" branch would open in Chicago.[6] The Chicago-based health colleges affiliated with the University in 1896–97, becoming fully incorporated into the University of Illinois in 1913, as the Colleges of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. Medical education and research dramatically expanded in the succeeding decades, leading to the development of several other health science colleges, which were brought together as the Chicago Professional Colleges of the University of Illinois. In 1935, the first act of newly-elected state representative Richard J. Daley was to introduce a resolution calling for the establishment of a Chicago campus of the University of Illinois.[7]

Expansion after World War II

In 1945 as the war ended, Daley (then a state senator) introduced four bills calling for a university in Chicago.[7] Following World War II, the University of Illinois increased its presence in Chicago by creating a temporary, two-year branch campus, the Chicago Undergraduate Division.[8] Known as 'Harvard on the Rocks' and housed on Navy Pier, the campus accommodated primarily student veterans on the G.I. Bill.[9] The campus was not a junior college, but rather had a curriculum based on Urbana's courses, and students who successfully completed the first two years' requirements could go on to Urbana and finish their degree.

University of Illinois Navy Pier Campus

Classes at the Navy Pier Campus began in October 1946, and approximately 4,000 students enrolled each semester. As Chicago had no comprehensive public university at that time, most students were first generation college students from working families, who commuted from home. Demand for a public university education in Chicago remained high, even after the first wave of veterans passed, so the University made plans to create a permanent degree-granting campus in the Chicago area.

In 1951, Daley succeeded in getting the state senate to pass a bill calling for a Chicago campus. Daley became mayor of Chicago in 1955 and pressed the University of Illinois to accept a Chicago campus.[7] After a long and controversial site decision process[10], in 1961, Mayor Daley offered the Harrison and Halsted Streets site for the new campus.[11] In that same year, what would later become the health science colleges became the University of Illinois at the Medical Center (UIMC).

The new Chicago campus was named the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (UICC) and opened in February 1965.[12] (The Circle part of the name referred to the nearby Circle Interchange.) UICC was designed by Walter Netsch of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, a Chicago-based architectural firm responsible for most of today's tallest skyscrapers.[13][14][15] Unlike the Navy Pier campus, Circle was a degree-granting institution. Many of the newly-recruited faculty came because it was connected to a strong research university and they pushed for rapid development into a research-oriented school emphasizing graduate instruction. Within five years of the campus' opening, virtually every department offered graduate degrees.

Consolidation

In 1979, University of Illinois system president Stanley Ikenberry walked from the Medical Center to the Circle Campus where he announced a plan to consolidate the two campuses to form the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). The merger took three years of work by Ikenberry; but, in September 1982 it was completed.[16] The merger strengthened the University's potential for scholarly excellence: In 1987, the post-merger UIC advanced to Carnegie Research 1 institution status.[17]

In 2000, UIC began developing the South Campus. The expansion of UIC south of Roosevelt Road increased on-campus living space and research facilities.

The University of Illinois at Chicago offers 74 bachelor degrees, 77 master degrees, and 60 doctoral degrees[18] through its 14 colleges, in addition to the university's specialized Honors College:[19]

UIC also offers eleven inter-college programs, including the Cancer Center, the Center for Structural Biology, the Neuroscience program, the Council for Teacher Education, the Graduate Education in Medical Sciences, the Guaranteed Professional Programs Admissions program, the Moving Image Arts program, the National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, the Office of International Affairs, the Study Abroad Office, and the Office of Special Scholarship Programs.

The university's chancellor is Paula Allen-Meares. There are seven vice chancellors, one CEO for administrative functions, and fifteen college deans. There is also a library dean and three regional deans for various colleges of medicine.[20]

Diversity

UIC's East Campus in October

The University of Illinois at Chicago consists of approximately 25,000 total students, of which nearly 15,000 are undergraduate students. UIC is the nation’s 4th most diverse university.[21] The demographic statistics in 2005 were as follows.

Race Number Percentage
White 6,561 43.3%
Asian American 3,849 24%
Hispanic 2,499 16.5%
African American 1,377 8.9%
Middle Eastern 1,013 6.7%
Native American 37 0.02%

The chancellor operates six different committees for Asian-Americans, Blacks, Latinos, LGBT, persons with disabilities, and women.

Pervasiveness

UIC is a pervasive presence in Chicago, Illinois, and the US. One in ten Chicagoans with a college degree is a UIC alumnus.[22] Approximately one in six Illinois doctors is a graduate of the UIC College of Medicine (the nation’s largest medical school). One in three Illinois pharmacists is a graduate of the College of Pharmacy. And more than one third of the state’s dentists are graduates of UIC’s College of Dentistry.

Rankings and statistics

Criteria included the quality of the curriculum, faculty, facilities and infrastructure. The Princeton Review also looked at data on scholarships, financial aid and career opportunities.[33]

The UIC pharmacy, nursing, applied health sciences, public health, social work, and urban planning programs are consistently ranked among the top in the nation.[31][32][34] The College of Dentistry is one of only two such programs offered in the State of Illinois.[35]

Campus

Jane Addams' Hull-House Museum

UIC is composed of three campuses supporting more than 25,000 students and 2,300 faculty members and staff.[36] These campuses cover 311 acres (1.3 km2) in the Little Italy and the University Village section of Chicago.

The East Campus was designed as a unified architectural vision by brutalist architect Walter Netsch. The original plan included second-story walkways that connected all of the buildings. These were taken down in phases during the early 1990s as part of a plan to "open up" the campus. Considerable effort has been expended to modify the original Netsch campus plan to create the feel of a traditional college campus. The area in front of the main administration building, University Hall, has been the site of several costly renovations in the last decade.

The East Campus is located on the Near West Side, just south of Greektown and a 15-minute walk from downtown Chicago. The juxtaposition of campus and commercial density was a direct result of large-scale urban renewal led by Mayor Richard J. Daley.[10] The proximity to downtown and public transit tends to attract students who want to experience life in a large city but have a typical college campus. Between East and West Campuses is Little Italy.

The West Campus is much older and includes some buildings built in the collegiate gothic style. The colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Dentistry, Applied Health Sciences and Public Health, as well as the Library of the Health Sciences are all located on the West Campus. The West Campus is in the heart of the Illinois Medical District where the University of Illinois Medical Center is located.

South Campus is in the University Village neighborhood and includes the former Maxwell Street. There are no strictly educational buildings here; South Campus is composed of residence halls, athletic facilities, and a large presentation space (the Forum). The neighborhoods abutting East and South campuses have already gone through the transitional stage with several large-scale developments creating thousands of new residences.

The Chicago Transit Authority's Blue Line, part of the Chicago 'L', runs through the median of the Eisenhower Expressway along the north side of the campus. Three Blue Line stations are close to the university: UIC-Halsted, Racine, and Illinois Medical District. The Pink Line serves UIC's west campus on Polk Street and runs directly to Ogilvie Transportation Center.

Student housing

South campus residence halls (TBH, MRH) on famous Maxwell St.

UIC offers 10 residence halls for its students. The East Campus contains four residence halls, the South Campus contains three, and the West Campus contains three as well. When the Circle Campus was built, then-UICC was strictly a commuter school. Until the South Campus expansion, UIC students were still predominantly commuters. However, the administration has worked to change the campus to one where most students are residential.[37] Nearly 6,000 students live within one-and-a-half miles of campus.[38] 3,800 students, including over half of all freshmen, live in UIC's 10 residence halls.[39] There are also thousands of apartments within walking distance to classes.

On the East Campus, Commons West and Commons South are traditional halls with double rooms opening into a common hallway; each floor shares a common bathroom. Courtyard and Commons North are cluster-style buildings with rooms grouped to share a small private bathroom. These four buildings are connected to the Student Center East which houses a cafeteria, the campus bookstore, a convenience store, bowling/billiards, a barber shop, and the Inner Circle (an assortment of fast food restaurants).

West Campus housing is composed of the Single Student Residence (apartments for graduate students), Polk Street Residence (cluster style rooms), and Student Residence Hall (a traditional dormitory).

South Campus is home to Marie Robinson Hall and Thomas Beckham Hall, both apartment style buildings. In the fall of 2007, James Stukel Towers opened containing suite style rooms with a bathroom and living room.

In keeping with UIC culture, students often referred to residence halls by abbreviations instead of their full names (e.g. "TBH" instead of "Thomas Beckham Hall").

Student recreation facility

The UIC Student Recreation Facility (SRF) is a state-of-the-art recreational complex for UIC students. Opened in spring 2006, the SRF features a three-story climbing wall; multipurpose courts for games such as basketball, indoor soccer, tennis and many others; and a pool with adjoining lazy river. A few NBA players practiced and worked out at the facility in the summer of 2007 including Andre Iguodala, Antoine Walker, and Eddy Curry.

Other amenities include:

  • 18,000 sq ft (1,700 m2). exercise room with equipment
  • 1/8 mile, 3-lane jogging track
  • 3-lane Lap and leisure pool including 50-person jacuzzi & a lazy river
  • Racquetball and convertible squash courts
  • 4 court wood floor gymnasium
  • 11,000 sq ft (1,000 m2). Multi Activity Court
  • Group fitness suites, including Spin Suite, Mind/Body Suite, Large Multipurpose Suite and the MAC Suite
  • Human performance lab
  • 42 ft (13 m). rock climbing wall
  • Outdoor adventures office
  • Juice and coffee bar
  • Active and passive lounge areas
  • Daily and annual use lockers

Medical center

UIC is a major part of the Illinois Medical District (IMD). While IMD's billing itself "the nation's largest urban medical district" may be up for debate, the district is a major economic force contributing $3.3 billion to the local economy and supporting 50,000 jobs.[40]

Campus renovations

Pic2-12215.jpg

With the major $550 million South Campus expansion complete, the university is focusing its attention on renovating existing facilities on campus. The focus on renovations is in part due to a constrained state budget: state funds for new buildings are currently scarce. Since renovation is less costly, this approach is being used to update facilities.

These renovations began with Grant Hall, continued with the (adjacent) Lincoln Hall, and are planned to continue with (also adjacent) Douglas Hall.[41] These renovations will be 'green' as the renovated buildings will have geothermal power. Fifty wells are being dug 500 feet into the ground, which will provide an energy savings of 20–25%. The buildings are also to be US LEED certified.

The new fascia will be all glass and the buildings will contain state of the art facilities for faculty and students. There are plans to expand the renovation project to every lecture hall cluster if the pilot program is successful.

Other campus renovations include the roof of the Behavioral Sciences Building and the terrace of the Education, Performing Arts, and Social Work building.[42]

Sustainability

The university's Office of Sustainability was founded in January 2008.[43] Current sustainability initiatives include lighting upgrades, building envelope improvements, metering upgrades, and landscape waste composting.[44] The college's Grant Hall was recently renovated to include geothermal heat pumps, which efficiently heat and cool the building.[45] The university has a draft version of a Climate Action Plan.[46]

Athletics

UIC's team name is the Flames, a tribute to the Great Chicago Fire which started a few blocks east of campus. The mascot is Sparky D. Dragon.

While UIC has traditionally focused on basketball (and ice hockey in the more distant past), soccer and baseball have also had recent successes.

In September 2006, the men's soccer team earned its highest ranking in school history when the SoccerTimes.com College Coaches Poll pegged the Flames at #6 in the country. In November 2006, UIC defeated Western Illinois 3–0 in the opening round of the NCAA tournament before falling in the second round to Notre Dame 1–0. UIC finished the 2006 season as the nation's best defensive squad after allowing a mere eight goals in over 1993 minutes of play during 21 matches for a goals-against average (GAA) of 0.36. The GAA was tops in the nation in 2006 and it also ranked fifth all-time in NCAA history. UIC posted 13 shutouts and never allowed more than a single goal in a match. UIC also allowed just two goals after intermission the entire season. Along with the GAA mark, UIC posted the nation's best save percentage with a 0.908 rate.

In 2007, UIC soccer's successful season culminated in an Elite-Eight appearance in the NCAA tournament by way of wins over #12 St. Louis, Northwestern, and #8 Creighton. In a bid for a Final-Four appearance, UIC fell to Massachusetts 2–1. At season's end, UIC had a record of 13–6–6 and was named a top 10 team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

UIC's baseball team has recorded 30 or more victories in 9 straight seasons, won the last 7 Horizon League Championships, and advanced to an NCAA regional in four of the past six years (2003, 2005, 2007, 2008). UIC baseball has recorded regional wins against #1 Long Beach State in 2007 and #2 Dallas Baptist University in 2008.

Student life

The university is located near the Taylor Street and Greektown neighborhoods, providing a diverse selection of restaurants, bars, and clubs for students who live in the area. Downtown Chicago is only a 10 minute walk or a short CTA ride away.

UIC offers a variety of organizations, including: Greek Life (30), Intramural Sports, Cultural Groups, Student Government, & Religious Groups (Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu).

UIC's monthly/weekly events: Friday Night Live

UIC's once-a-semester/year events: Relay for Life, Recess (Mini Carnival), Organization Olympics, UIC Fashion Show, Black History Month, Taste of UIC, & Cultural Fest.
