The Office of Public and Government Affairs is focused on establishing strong relationships with outside constituencies and building broad understanding of the many ways in which UIC contributes to society. Units within Public and Government Affairs are responsible for community relations, communications and institutional advocacy.

The mission of the Office of Public and Government Affairs is to expand and strengthen awareness, understanding, appreciation and support of the University of Illinois at Chicago and its missions in research, education, health care, public service and economic development. Our vision and goal is to highlight the achievements of UIC’s outstanding faculty, students, staff, alumni and community partners and to lead UIC in shaping, crafting and broadcasting strategic, effective and timely communications and advocacy.
