Tours of the Jane Addams Hull House
The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum serves as a dynamic memorial to social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her colleagues whose work changed the lives of their immigrant neighbors as well as national and international public policy. The Museum preserves and develops the original Hull-House site for the interpretation and continuation of the historic settlement house vision, linking research, education, and social engagement.
Midwest Nursing History Resource Center
The Midwest Nursing History Resource Center developed out of an historical methodology research interest group that was part of the federally funded Nurse Faculty Research Development in the Midwest Project (1978). Its original promoters were doctorally prepared nurses who wished to establish a repository for significant documents relating to nursing history in the Midwest.
Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change
Our six Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change are dedicated to fostering greater acceptance and understanding, ensuring that students make the most of their experiences at UIC while also serving as a “second home” for students and a resource for educational materials, music, and art.
