About University of Chicago

The University of Chicago is an urban research university that has driven new ways of thinking since 1890. Their commitment to free and open inquiry draws inspired scholars to their global campuses, where ideas are born that challenge and change the world. They empower individuals to challenge conventional thinking in pursuit of original ideas. Students in the College develop critical, analytic, and writing skills in their rigorous, interdisciplinary core curriculum. Through graduate programs, students test their ideas with UChicago scholars, and become the next generation of leaders in academia, industry, non-profits, and government. The Office of International Affairs is dedicated to enhancing a vibrant international community and to fostering cross-cultural experience. They welcome, support and strengthen diversity through advocacy and holistic service. Enriching connections is their goal.

On July 9, 1890, the University’s founders defined what they believed would build an enduring legacy: a commitment to rigorous academics for people of all backgrounds, including “opportunities for all departments of higher education to persons of both sexes on equal terms. By 1910, the University had developed a variety of traditions, including a coat of arms bearing a phoenix emerging from the flames and a Latin motto, Crescat scientia, vita excolatur. In 1894, maroon had become the University’s official color and “the Maroons” its nickname. The University of Chicago, from its very inception, has been driven by a singular focus on inquiry. Everything about the University of Chicago that they recognize as distinctive flows from this commitment. Since 1890, the University of Chicago’s singular focus on inquiry has made it a model for modern institutions of higher education and research. Across numerous departments and disciplines, as well as over 150 institutes and centers, the UChicago community advances ideas and innovations that enrich human life. The University’s culture of inquiry thrives on intellectual rigor, diverse perspectives, extensive civic and research partnerships, and ever-broadening global reach.

UChicago research has led to such breakthroughs as discovering the link between cancer and genetics, establishing revolutionary theories of economics, and developing tools to produce reliably excellent urban schooling. They generate new insights for the benefit of present and future generations with their national and affiliated laboratories: Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The University of Chicago is enriched by the city they call home. In partnership with their neighbours, they invest in Chicago's mid-South Side across such areas as health, education, economic growth, and the arts. Together with their medical center, they are the largest private employer on the South Side. In all they do, they are driven to dig deeper, push further, and ask bigger questions—and to leverage their knowledge to enrich all human life. Their diverse and creative students and alumni drive innovation, lead international conversations, and make masterpieces. Alumni and faculty, lecturers and postdocs go on to become Nobel laureates, CEOs, university presidents, attorneys general, literary giants, and astronauts.
