Vincent A. "Vince" Paglione Fund


With over 33 years of dedicated service to the University of Illinois at Chicago, Vincent A. "Vince" Paglione held numerous positions ranging from Coordinator for the Exchange Program, Interim Chair for the Department of Theater & Music, and the Associate Dean for the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts (CADA). Educator, mentor, counselor, friend, and father figure are only a few of the enduring terms which sum up his love and support he provided to so many.

Though his accolades were many, including the 2012 AIA Chicago Distinguished Service Award and board member of Spanish Public Radio and HHW School of Performing Arts, his greatest accomplishment was helping thousands of students advance academically, personally, and professionally.

The Vincent A. Paglione Fund honors Vince's legacy by facilitating international exchange for students within CADA, allowing all learners to have the opportunity to benefit from global experiences regardless of financial barriers. To date, our community of supporters have helped the Vincent A. Paglione Fund reach over halfway to CADA’s $25,000 minimum endowment level goal. While a total below the endowment level would support student travel in the short term, the achievement of this endowment goal would ensure Vince's Fund remains a hallmark of CADA for future generations of UIC learners. 

Please help us reach our goal by making a contribution to the Vincent A. Paglione Fund today. If you have any questions, or wish to discuss additional ways to donate, please contact Oliver Ionita, Assistant Dean for Advancement, at (312) 996-4714, or oliver88@uic.edu.
