Event Description
The U&I Care Program is an initiative of the Office of the Dean of Students to identify resources and provide assistance to students dealing with personal hardship. The program educates the campus community about services and programs on and off campus. While on campus in previous academic years, U&ICare hosted "pop-up" sessions all around campus, educating the campus community of the various resources at UIC through creative games and exciting giveaways.U&ICare aims to keep this initiative going, especially in light of this pandemic, as informing students of the resources available to them has proven to be more important than ever. As UIC transitions to remote learning, we want to ask various offices on campus to "pop-up" for a virtual chat. We hope they could share information about the services that are offered and discuss any changes to accessing those services in a remote learning environment.We welcome students to join us as we invite different offices to "pop-up" in the U&ICare Pop-Up: Virtual Chat Edition.
