UIC Office of International Affairs


  OIA supports UIC Faculty with the John Nuveen International Development Fund


       The Office of International Affairs was proud to award the John Nuveen International Development Fund nine of UIC’s talented faculty. Each awardee was given up to $1000.00 to spend on a project promoting international work and collaboration.  Focusing their efforts in their individual fields of study, the awardees were able to expand their work with international partners and institutions, as well as cultivate international relationships on behalf of UIC.


Each faculty member used the IDF in a different way. The following is a sample of the great work OIA is proud to support.


  Dr. Ali Dijalilian & Dr. Amir Mehralian                      Dr. Brian Murphy                                                 Beate Geissler

                 Ophthalmology                         Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy               Department of Art and Design



The work of each awardee furthered UIC’s relationships abroad and expanded on scientific, artistic, and humanitarian work that UIC so highly values. For more information about the wonderful ways in which UIC faculty used the John Nuveen International Development Fund, click here.


OIA would like to congratulate to all of our 2012-2013 IDF awardees. Thank you for your continued work in your field of study and dedication to international relations.
