Chicago Ideas Week

Each year the University of Illinois sponsors Chicago Ideas Week, a week of talks, labs, summits and other events in Chicago that brings together thinkers from around the world to provide insight into topics such as education, entrepreneurship, digital manufacturing and science. The University of Illinois sponsorship provides opportunities for faculty, staff, students, alumni and other campus partners to participate in the talks, labs and other activities. The Office of Public Engagement serves as the main point of contact for the Urbana campus and represents the Urbana campus on the University steering committee.
