Please join us as four UIC undergraduate students receive the Alejandro Castro Memorial Fund Award. The celebration starts at 3 p.m., in Daley Library r.1-470; the program begins at 3:15 p.m.

The award honors the memory of Alejandro Castro, a respected, long-time employee of the UIC Library. Alejandro was an engaged staff member who worked to break down barriers to inclusion and increase accessibility on campus, serving on many Library task forces and on the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities. Each student receives a $2,500 award to support their academic success at UIC.

This is an in-person event; a recording of the ceremony will be available later this month.
