The College of Dentistry invites you to participate in our annual Urban Health Program (UHP) Open House to learn about the admissions process, engage in a dental activity, tour the college, and network with dental students.
The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is one of the nation’s most diverse public research universities. As a federally designated Minority Serving Institution, we are a living, learning, and working community that embraces our diversity. Our aim is to ensure that neither difference nor disadvantage impede the intellectual and professional achievement of our campus community. Every day we welcome students, staff, and faculty from a variety of racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities to achieve this aim. At UIC, diversity is not an end in itself, but a vehicle for advancing access, equity, and inclusion.
About the Urban Health Program at UIC
The mission of the University of Illinois at Chicago Urban Health Program is to recruit, retain, and graduate underrepresented racial/ethnic minority students, specifically African American, Latinos, and Native Americans, into the health professions. We seek to expand educational and re-search opportunities for these populations at all academic levels in order to develop underrepresented racial/ethnic minority health care professionals, faculty and re-searchers with the goals of eliminating health disparities.
