UIC – in College of Education
The Chicago Area Writing Project moved to the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2007. UIC is a major research university offering the cultural, business and entertainment opportunities you can only find in a world-class city. As one of the top 50 research-funded institutions in the nation, UIC faculty discover the things that others teach. UIC includes 15 academic colleges including the UIC College of Medicine-the largest in the nation-which educates one in six Illinois physicians.
