Executive Summary (PDF)



Final Report (coming soon)



Envisioning Our Future: 2017-2027 Plan provides inspirational and data-driven recommendations for UIC’s physical campus development over the next ten years. Serving as an update to the 2010 UIC Campus Master Plan, this plan was developed using historical data, strategic growth plans, past planning efforts and an in-depth space capacity analysis. Anticipated growth in student enrollment and changing educational demands all impact the future of UIC’s physical environment. This plan addresses these needs by providing thoughtful recommendations that will allow UIC to continue to serve as a modern world-class research university. Recommendations include the construction of new facilities, potential public-private partnerships, and gateway, transformational grounds and intersection projects. Envisioning Our Future: 2017- 2027 Plan will achieve the following goals:

  • Enrich the Student Experience
  • Support Scholarship and Research
  • Strengthen Connections in the Community

These goals assure that the University’s Strategic Priorities of advancing student experience and success, increasing national and international impact and visibility, embracing Chicago and community engagement, and becoming an entrepreneurial university, are carried out in physical form. The recommendations and goals of this plan ensure that students can learn in a safe and vibrant environment and that new facilities will support evolving research and pedagogy needs, while strengthening UIC’s commitment to the city and community. The successful implementation of this plan is contingent upon feedback from the UIC and local community. Please see the “Feedback Form” on the bottom of this page to provide your comments.
