UIC Forensics Team Photo

The University of Illinois at Chicago Forensics Program is an intercollegiate speech team. We represent UIC at regional and national speech competitions (similar to the UIC basketball, track and other athletic teams).

Forensics is the study and practice of public speaking, oral interpretation and debate. Speakers and performers seek to move, persuade or inspire their audience.

While less than a decade old, the UIC Speech has been one of the most successful teams in UIC’s history ranking in the top 10 of teams in the nation; even earning the 2022 International and State Championships.
