Welcome to the Equity and Inclusion in Engineering Program at UIC! Heading link

The Equity and Inclusion in Engineering Program (EIEP) supports the transition to UIC Engineering for historically underrepresented populations, first-generation students, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community; and encourages their persistence in the engineering and technology fields. EIEP also provides academic advising, scholarship opportunities, mentorship, and various programs to enhance students’ experience at UIC.

“There is a strong sense of community [in this program]. You end up forming your own little family at school that you can always go to for help. I am still in contact with peers who already graduated, and I know that’s a network I will always rely on.”

Ana Escoto-Cardenas, BS ’16  |  Current master's student in industrial engineering

UIC is located on the traditional homelands of the Three Fire Peoples — the Ojibwe, Odawa, Bodéwadmi, and other Nations such as the Menominee, Ho-Chunk, Miami, and many other Indigenous Peoples. The U of I System carries out its mission in its namesake state, Illinois, and has a responsibility to acknowledge these Native Nations and to work with them as we move forward as a vibrant, inclusive institution.
