Promote education, research, innovation, and community development

The Office of Civic Engagement is expanding its work to promote education, research, innovation, and community development in and around the city of Chicago.

The Chicago Innovation Exchange (CIE) is a new resource to support collaborations and start-up companies by UChicago faculty, students, and partners. The CIE will fuel innovation and economic growth on the South Side of Chicago.

The Office of Civic Engagement is also developing a model for clinical research and healthcare delivery on the South Side. This scalable model holds the potential to revolutionize urban healthcare around the world.
