The City Partner Award was created in 1993 by a committee of alumni volunteers and campus staff members to recognize ...

"Those University of Illinois alumni who have gone on from UIC to contribute to the vitality of the Chicago metropolitan area in a special way."

The purpose and intent of the City Partner Award is to recognize the impact UIC alumni have on the region, whether the impact is quiet and generally unknown, or public and highly visible. The award identifies alumni involvement in two major venues, in either the key areas of urban development identified by the UIC Great Cities Program or in outstanding service to the University of Illinois at Chicago, itself. The six main areas of the Great Cities Institute are community development, metropolitan sustainability, health and human development, international partnerships, professional education and the UIC neighborhoods initiative. A committee of past recipients and alumni leaders determine the recipients.
