Grounded in community values and priorities, and mindful of privilege, service is the conscious act of working toward the equity of society and the welfare of others. Student Leadership and Civic Engagement provides a variety of programs and service opportunities with community partners in the many neighborhoods of Chicago, supporting students to become lifelong active citizens.

The Welcome Service Project is an annual event for incoming first year and transfer students. Taking place on August 23, 2019, the project gives students an opportunity to provide service as a group, build a UIC community, and kick off their journey to becoming an active citizen.
