About the campaign

The University of Chicago Campaign: Inquiry and Impact, the most ambitious and comprehensive campaign in the University’s history, will raise $4.5 billion and engage 125,000 alumni to support faculty and researchers, practitioners and patients, and students and programs across the University.

Together, we are:

  • creating an environment that will spur more insights and innovations, solutions and cures;
  • preparing more students to lead in an increasingly complex world;
  • building more powerful connections to Chicago and cities around the globe.

The campaign supports priorities in every division, school, department, and institute, across six major content areas: global engagement, scientific discovery, urban research and practice, intellectual destination, innovation and economic impact, and culture and society.

It is our opportunity—as alumni and friends, patients and families—to ensure that UChicago continues to take its place among the world’s great centers of discovery, education, and influence by supporting faculty and students in their quest to define future inquiry and its impact on our lives.

Concluding in 2019, the UChicago Campaign will advance the University’s scholarly mission and foster a more engaged, more connected community around the world.
