Resources to support students during COVID-19 crisis

These resources for students were compiled by the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Diversity.

UIC cares about you. These past few weeks have brought a great deal of changes as we endeavor to flatten the curve and limit the spread of COVID-19. These changes can cause stress, and you may have questions and need support. Your UIC family is here for you and is so proud of you.

There are many resources that UIC has available to support you during this time. Here are a few highlights:

  • Feeling isolated?
    • The Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change are coming up with all kinds of creative ways to stay connected during this time. Never visited a Center before? That is okay! They are excited to welcome you to one of their virtual communities.
    • The Counseling Center is meeting with students virtually and continues to offer after-hours crisis care.
  • Concerned about safety?
    • In the case of an emergency, please contact UIC Police or your local emergency services.
    • The Campus Advocacy Network is a confidential resource available to provide support and advocacy for students who have experienced interpersonal violence. Advocates are available to meet by phone, videoconference, and online chat.
  • Concerned about employment?
    • Career Services staff are available for virtual appointments, and they have lots of information about current short-term, long-term and summer employment opportunities.

Please visit the respective websites of these various programs/resources for more information on how to access their services.
