Diversity in our academic programs supports our students of different backgrounds as well as students interested in the many cultures of the world. Our faculty members come from different career paths, disciplines, countries, and perspectives and are leaders, creators, healers, and explorers. In addition to learning about diversity, our students celebrate their own. On-campus programs work to build a community of support for students of varying backgrounds.
- Academic Affinity Groups are communities that exist within the larger University divisions and schools to support students of varying cultures, backgrounds, lifestyles, and beliefs.
- Research and Internships enable students to perform research with our faculty up to three years before applying to graduate school. UChicago is a participant in the Leadership Alliance, the Creating Connections Consortium (C3), and Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program (MMUF).
