School Description

The groundwork for the University of Chicago was laid on July 9, 1890. The University was founded on the commitment to offer a rigorous academic program and an ambition to provide opportunities for all departments of higher education to persons of both sexes on equal terms.

UChicago’s research has impacted the globe, leading 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.

UChicago’s first Nobel laureate was Albert A. Michelson – the first American to win the Nobel Prize in any of the sciences. Michelson was recognized in 1907 for his advancements in measuring the speed of light. In sum, faculty, researchers and alumni of the University of Chicago have earned nearly 90 Nobel Prizes and nearly 50 MacArthur ‘genius grants’, along with numerous national medals and fellowships.

          • 1987-1998, PhD

            I have attended multiple colleges and universities, have consulted to many more, and have met and worked with folks that have graduated from all of the top universities of the world. I received my PhD from the U of C. My wife received her BA and MBA from the U of C. And now our daughter attends the College. The University of Chicago is one of the Great Universities of the world. The College is one of the finest undergraduate institutions of liberal arts education every created and increasingly is the intellectual home of many of todays leaders. The majority of the University's graduate programs are in the top, if not the top, in their field of study. The campus is spectacularly beautiful. The city of Chicago is nearby, vibrant, and one of the great cities of the world in its own right. Going to the University of Chciago is one of the best things I have ever done, and continues to bring value to my life.

          • 1987-1999, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            I think being an alumni, we need to reflect closely and carefully at our campus budget based on the students need. I think a lack of a budget is a lack of professionalism on campus phones, emails, written correspondence, and in person why minority research needs are not being met at UIC.
