Intercultural Connections

Intercultural Connections: Sparking inclusive community at UIC aims to foster an inclusive campus space where UIC students from all parts of the world come together to collectively grow in their intercultural competency. Through opportunities for co-curricular and social engagement, participants will develop the awareness and skills to better understand themselves, others, and their communities through an intercultural lens.

The program's vision is to contribute to the internationalization of the UIC campus by promoting cross-cultural friendships and developing global citizens who embody and apply the UIC values of diversity, inclusion, and social justice throughout their personal and professional lives in Chicago and abroad.
