Inclusive Construction Initiative


The Inclusive Construction Initiative is a joint effort between the University of Chicago Office of Civic Engagement, Facilities Services, and UChicago Medicine to create economic opportunities for minorities, women, and local residents through our campus construction and renovation projects.

The initiative shares the progress the University and UChicago Medicine have made toward ambitious construction diversity goals established in 2017 through regular reports.
