The events are sponsored by the U and I Care Program, which provides a network of care for UIC students. An initiative of the Office of the Dean of Students, the program offers options for students facing personal difficulties.
“It is an initiative that aims to provide resources and assistance to students who are dealing with personal life situations,” said Cynthia Rosales, student advocacy assistant. “U and I Care also serves as a resource for faculty and staff to raise awareness of the options available in order to best assist students.”
Resources are available for free on topics ranging from work-life or school-life balance, transportation, housing, financial assistance and more.
