SHARE WITH STUDENTS: Intouch Crisis Hotline Info and Lock-in being conducted tonight 4/21!

With the stress of everyday life and finals on the way, the Counseling Center just wanted to take the time to inform you about the UIC InTouch Crisis Hotline.

Whether it’s regarding anxiety, homework overload, or just personal problems, the Hotline is a free service for anyone that feels like they want to be heard. The Hotline is confidential with the exceptions of immediate harm to yourself/others or neglect/abuse of a child or elderly individual.

This upcoming school year our goal is to reach out to more UIC students. This being said, I would appreciate if you took the time to inform all of your students of this FREE service provided for them. Many professors already incorporate the counseling services in their syllabus, so you are more than welcomed to do so with the Hotline as well. The number for the hotline is 312-996-5535. We are open Sunday through Friday from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm. Moreover, Friday (April 21, 2016) we are conducting a lock-in, which means we will be open from 6:00 pm-6:00 am.

Ceremony: 5:00 – 6:30 p.m., Reception: 6:30 – 9 p.m.

The Keynote Speaker this year will be Owen Daniel-McCarter. Owen is a transgender attorney, educator, and advocate. He is the Executive Director of the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance where he supports gender inclusivity in schools, LGBT affirming curriculum, bullying prevention, and restorative school discipline practices. He has a bachelor’s degree in Women and Gender Studies from the Univearebrsity of Vermont and, while he was a student there, helped co-found a national student-run conference on trans/gender identity and trans activism called the Translating Identity Conference.

He is a founding collective member of the Transformative Justice Law Project, the former Legal Director of the TransLife Center, and was an adjunct faculty member at DePaul University in Chicago.


Lavender Graduation is a unique convocation ceremony that honors the academic achievements of UIC’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and allied (LGBTQA) graduating class. The event is open to students from every college at UIC and our graduate pool grows larger each year. Lavender Graduation is one of the Gender and Sexuality Center’s hallmark programs. Students throughout the years have testified that the prospect of walking in “Lav Grad” motivates them through tough times with juggling classwork and other obligations. In addition to several other programs we offer, Lavender Graduation supports the attraction, retention and successful graduation of many LGBTQA students each year.

The graduate and guest registration links are now available! Please register yourself and your guests today, and pass the links on to others.
