Diversity Day (2019)

Join your friends at College of Dentistry in celebrating Diversity for an entire week! The week will showcase Lunch and Learn presentations, an art show,  a talent show featuring the arts, and of course delicious ethnic foods representing the diversity of the college.

This year's theme: The  art of thinking Independently together.

The events will provide opportunities for individuals to come together in unity and to celebrate the rich diversity of our College community.   Although we endeavor to celebrate diversity every day, one of the goals for this week long event is to promote the different spectrums of diversity and inclusion. It is structured in a way to bring the College together and to share student, staff and faculty differences and similarities through a variety of activities.

UIC is proud to be recognized as having one of the most ethnically and culturally rich college campuses in America.
