Care Week

TEXT: U&ICare Week

A week of event’s that highlight various campus resources/departments at UIC. It is an opportunity for students to engage with these offices and learn about the services they provide.

Each year, Care Week focuses in one central theme and provides events and initiatives to students that promote engagement and serve as a resource educational tool. In past years, Care Week themes have included: “Promoting Self-Care”, “Wellness”, and “Destigmatizing Mental Health”.

Care Week 2022 - March 28th through April 1st Heading link

UIC is made up of so many different resources and offices on campus dedicated to supporting a student’s holistic well-being — including social, academic, mental & physical. This year’s Care Week will focus on bringing attention to the wonderful resources available to UIC students!

Coming back from Spring Break can be rejuvenating, but it can also be difficult to gain the motivation. We want Care Week to give students the sense of encouragement they need as we close out the Spring semester. The topic for this year is centered around Care in the Community. The week of events this year will highlight some of the great work offices on campus are doing and to remind students that there are many resources on campus they can access.

Check out the various virtual & in-person opportunities for students to learn about the amazing offices and resources at UIC during Care Week!

U&ICare Pop Ups - Virtual Chat Edition Heading link

In honor of Care Week, our Peer Care Interns interviewed a few offices on campus including the Counseling Center, Student Veteran Affairs & the UIC Heritage Garden at UIC. Ever wondered what types of resources these offices provide? Want to learn more about events & initiatives these offices are hosting? Watch a U&ICare Pop Up today to learn more!

While on campus in previous academic years, U&ICare hosted “pop-up” sessions all around campus, educating the campus community of the various resources at UIC through creative games and exciting giveaways.

We hope to keep this initiative going in this new virtual climate, as informing students of the resources available to them is expected to be more important than ever. Check back each month for highlights on the various programs in our network and the critical work they do to support students at UIC.

See who is "popping up"!
