The Image Of Research

Researcher's working

The Image of Research is an annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition organized by the Graduate College and University Library to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC. Each year, students enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program at UIC are invited to submit an image they created along with a brief précis of how the image relates to the student’s overall research.

The winning entries are chosen by a multi-disciplinary jury and exhibited at the Daley Library and in the Library of Health Sciences and are featured on light pole banners around campus.
