The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) traces its roots back to a group of medical, pharmacy, and dental schools founded during the nineteenth century on the Near West Side (“Medical Center”), as well as an Undergraduate Division of the University of Illinois established in 1945 on Chicago’s Navy Pier to help receive the influx of World War II veterans seeking higher education under the GI Bill.
In 1965, the Navy Pier campus was shut down and a full-scale university known as the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (UICC) was opened about a mile south of the Medical Center. Finally, in 1982, the Medical Center and UICC were merged to create UIC as it is today.
Organized into 16 colleges, the university offers 86 bachelor’s degrees, 111 master’s degrees, and 66 doctorates. Through its Extended Campus, UIC offers scores of courses and degree programs organized into twelve different professional clusters.
UIC is associated with one Nobel Prize laureate for peace: Jean Bogner.
Among many other distinguished UIC-connected individuals, we may mention the following:
UIC is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).

Our answer to this is to show you the disciplines in which a school's faculty and alumni have had the highest historical influence. A school may be influential in a discipline even if they do not offer degrees in that area. We've organized two lists to show where they are influential and offer corresponding degrees, and where they are influential through scholarship although they don't offer degrees in the disciplines.
