    Mission Statement

    The mission of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is to project the University's image as a national competitor in athletics while enriching the lives of student athletes by providing opportunities for physical, intellectual and social growth. As a Division I athletic program in a major city with several competitive programs, UIC's athletic mission is to attract top notch student athletes reflecting the rich tradition of our students' competitive work ethic and the campus' ethnic and gender diversity. The Department's goal is to win conference championships regularly and to be nationally competitive in men's and women's sports each year while demonstrating high standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct. The University provides student athletes with academic assistance to enhance opportunities for graduation, creates an enthusiastic arena in which student athletes compete and showcase UIC's winning team through effective media coverage.
