There are a number of science projects around the country and globally that explore the civic mission of science, interrogate biases within science, and look for solutions to make scientific research more diverse, accessible and in service to a greater good. UIC has internationally recognized faculty in STEM and health science fields whose work illuminates, innovates and serves under-served communities and public needs. The Social Justice Initiative has convened several scholars from UIC’s West Campus to develop this connection  through curriculum, engaged scholarship, and community engagement.
