The University of Illinois Chicago’s commitment to supporting Latinx student success has again earned national recognition.
Excelencia in Education recertified UIC’s “Seal of Excelencia,” an independent national recognition of the institution’s efforts to support Latinx students while serving all and providing tools to help them earn degrees. The university first earned the distinction from the nonprofit organization in 2020.
“UIC is proud to earn continued recognition from Excelencia in Education,” UIC Chancellor Marie Lynn Miranda said. “The recertification reflects our deep commitment to our role as a Hispanic-Serving Institution. Our efforts, from financial aid and academic advising to engaged cultural learning and student involvement opportunities, provide the resources that lead to higher education access and success.”
