Collaboratory for Urban and Intercultural Learning
The Collaboratory for Urban and Intercultural Learning works with areas of the university to develop curricular and co-curricular opportunities designed to encourage greater integration of students' in-class and out-of-class experience. Our students are immersed into a space rich with expressions of faith, culture, and knowledge. We offer conferences, leadership forums, cultural events and community outreach projects that enhance awareness and knowledge in diversity, culture and communication.
Our programs primarily explore the contemporary urban context, with an effort to include questions regarding justice in the multicultural context and a distinct orientation toward the city of Chicago as a local laboratory. We affirm the university's stance that learning does not occur within a campus vacuum. All of Chicago constitutes an exciting and engaging classroom with thousands of teachers and countless learning peers. In this way, we choose to fully own our pursuit of lives that are significant and of service to others, placing it in concert with the world around us.
We hope you will attend and become an active participant in our events and programs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Terry A. Lindsay, Dean of Diversity and Intercultural Programs, by email or by phone at (773) 244-4588.
