National Student Issues Convention

October 22, 2021

12:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Chicago, IL 60612

More than 200 UIC students will participate in this virtual event, which allows students to interact with political candidates and office holders and encourages them to share their thoughts on the pressing issues of our time. Past topics of discussion have included the state budget, jobs, affordable health care, immigration policy and more. Please consider attending if your schedule permits. A Zoom link will be emailed upon registration. Further details on the program will be available online closer to the event date.

Lastly, many colleges and departments across the university will be hosting their own civic engagement activities throughout the semester. I encourage students to speak with their professors and departmental administrators about these events and explore engagement opportunities available on the UIC Service Portal or on the websites of the Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement and Student Leadership and Civic Engagement.
