The UIC Office of Public Affairs is the designated public information resource for the university and its hospital system, UI Health. Members of the Public Affairs team are available to assist members of the news media who are looking for information about UIC or are looking for expert comments.
As Chicago’s public research university and the home of the state’s major public medical center, UIC’s faculty and clinical experts can provide insights on local, national and global news stories and trending topics, from emerging gene editing techniques to cure diseases to the psychological affects of rude workplace emails.
The Public Affairs team is also available to help arrange on campus interviews and filming or photography opportunities. News media are not permitted inside UIC facilities unless approved by Public Affairs.
News media members are also encouraged to subscribe to receive news releases and weekly emails highlighting campus events and available experts based on trending news topics.
