Brilliant Futures: the Campaign for the University of Illinois

In 1859, 12 gentlemen chartered the Chicago College of Pharmacy. In 1896, the College joined the University of Illinois system to eventually become UIC College of Pharmacy. With almost 150 years of pharmacy education and research, we have built quite a legacy.

In 2007, the University of Illinois kicked off the Brilliant Futures campaign. Brilliant Futures is the largest and most ambitious campaign in the history of the University, seeking to raise $2.25 billion for students, faculty, research and the campus environment.

Of that $2.25 billion, the college's goal is to raise almost $20 million towards education and research. Below is a detailed breakdown of the College of Pharmacy's fundraising goals and priorities.
