UIC Black History Month

The UIC Black History Month 2023 Student Planning Committee welcomes students, faculty, and staff to partake in this year’s recognition of Black History Month.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by Africans and African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of Black people in U.S. history. In recognition, several campus events have been scheduled by the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Join us as we celebrate this year’s theme, Black University. Black University represents community and coming together as a Black student body. This month will be a celebration of Blackness in academia in order to make the Black students at UIC feel seen and supported. Through engaging conversations and fun events, we hope to highlight all different shades of Black students, faculty, and staff on campus. Let’s celebrate Black culture together as we create a space for ourselves!

Join us at upcoming events! Heading link
