Jane Addams’ Hull-House: Humanities Programs for the Centennial
1989-1990

The year-long project was developed to contribute to the campus celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the world-renowned settlement house. The establishment of the Hull-House initiated an impressive variety of activities which affected the development of American as well as Chicago history in the areas of social work, urban investigation, education, politics, public health, the status of women, industrial reform, labor relations, international affairs and the arts.

The Jane Addams’ Hull-House, located on the eastern edge of the UIC campus, was founded in 1889 and is comprised of two buildings: the Hull Mansion, built in 1856 and the Residence Dining Hall built in 1905. The buildings were restored by the university in the 1960’s and the complex was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1967 and a Chicago Landmark in 1974.

These programs made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
