Monday, February 15 at 5:00pm - University of Chicago’s Urban Teacher Education Program

The University of Chicago’s Urban Teacher Education Program (Chicago UTEP) is a selective two-year program prepares students to become successful teachers—and eventually teacher leaders—in urban elementary schools and high schools, with a particular emphasis on Chicago. UTEP recruits and prepares individuals with a commitment to social justice; who are specifically interested in teaching in challenging urban schools. Students completing the program receive a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree and an Illinois Teaching Certificate for elementary grades (grades K-9) or a teaching certificate and endorsement to teach in high school mathematics or biology (grades 6-12).

Tuesday, February 16 at 5:00pm - University of Chicago Public Interest Program (UCPIP)
Are you a 4th year considering a career in the nonprofit or public interest sector? Are you looking for a way to give back to the community before starting grad school, law school, or med school?

UCPIP places graduates of the College in year-long, paid Fellowship positions at nonprofit and public interest organizations throughout the Chicago area.

We’ll be conducting an info session at 5710 on Tuesday, February 16, at 5:00pm. If you’re interested in the program, we encourage you to come. If you can’t make it, please contact Eric Rogers at or 773-702-4595.
