University of Illinois at Chicago

2007 Workshop Host

July 9, 2007 - July 14, 2007
Co-Coordinated with Tanera Marshall

Located less than 1 mile from the heart of downtown Chicago, the University of Illinois at Chicago is a level-one research University with over 200 areas of study and is committed to creating and disseminating new knowledge as a university of growing national and international stature. The largest university in the Chicago area, UIC has 25,000 students. Growing numbers of students are attracted to UIC and they reflect the global character of Chicago; more than a third of UIC students speak English as a second language. UIC's student body - approximately 65 percent undergraduate and 35 percent graduate and professional - is recognized as one of the nation's most diverse. The university considers the diversity of its student population among its greatest strengths.


UIC was formed in 1982 by the consolidation of two U. of I. campuses: the Medical Center campus, which dates back to the 19th century, and the comprehensive Chicago Circle campus which in 1965 replaced the two-year undergraduate Navy Pier campus that had opened in 1946 to educate returning veterans. On February 22, 1965 the Chicago Circle Campus became a 4 year university.

In 1991 the Department of Performing Arts (DPA) was formed as a unit of the College of Art and Architecture. The Department of Performing Arts offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music or Theatre and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre. DPA's mission emphasizes the interconnectedness of the arts; cross-disciplinary study and artistic exploration are encouraged and supported.

The Music curriculum includes theory, history, ear-training, and performance skills. Elective areas of concentration include performance, composition, orchestration, literature, and ethnomusicology. Music students participate in performance ensembles including The UIC Choirs, Jazz Ensemble, Concert Band, and several chamber music groups.

The Theater curriculum emphasizes a balance between practice and theory from originating impulse or idea to relation. The Theater program boasts a faculty that works extensively as professional actors, directors, and designers in Chicago's vibrant theater scene and beyond.
