Funding Priorities

Enable student success: We must open our doors wide and help make an arts education accessible and affordable, regardless of financial background or circumstances. Students will develop most successfully through opportunities that are faculty-driven and community-engaged. Providing state-of-the-art facilities will help our students and faculty reach their full creative potential.

Empower faculty with new resources: We must retain leading scholars and attract new faculty from around the world by supporting visiting artists, endowed faculty positions, professorships, and funding for pioneering academic work.

When you give to the UIC College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts, you also support Chicago’s vibrant arts community.

At UIC, the role of philanthropy has never been more crucial. Whether your gift supports scholarships, new productions or exhibitions, facility renovations, or our faculty, you are having a direct, visible impact on our students. It is our promise to our students to connect them with the best educators and practitioners, expose them to unique and challenging opportunities, and provide hands-on experiences in a supportive and nurturing environment.
If you would like to discuss with us how you can support the college, contact our Advancement Team.
