Subject Line: UIC Impact Summit

Dear Students,

You are invited to attend the UIC Impact Summit scheduled for Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., Room 302, Student Center East, 750 South Halsted Street.

UIC Impact Summit’s purpose is to help you get involved on campus (by moving from participation into involvement), which will start your process to becoming a student leader on campus.

At the UIC Impact Summit you will evaluate your values, your intentions, and your skill-sets to help determine what you want to get out of your participation and involvement on campus. Then we will connect you with student leaders from various student organizations on campus, and they will share their organizations’ values, intentions, and skill-sets, and what you can gain by joining their organizations.

Discover your UIC Impact!
