UIC Corporate Connections
The UIC Corporate Connections program is an effort between the University of Illinois Alumni Association and local companies at which UIC has a strong presence of alumni and friends. With more than 70 percent of UIC's graduates living and working in Illinois, Corporate Connections programs provide a beneficial partnership for local businesses and the University. These partnerships connect alumni with students from the University of Illinois at Chicago through internships, professional mentoring and scholarship development initiatives, all within the context of where alumni work.
