Faculty connections. It’s in our core.

Making the most of access to world-renowned academics

“I went to a smaller high school, so making sure that I could really connect with professors in college mattered to me. I found this at UChicago. Professors are well-known and recognized in their field (they’ll often cite their own research or share areas of a study that they’re spearheading), but as their student, there aren’t many barriers to connecting with them beyond the classroom. You’ll always see a line of students talking with the professor after class.”
