The Mission

For more than a century, University of Illinois Chicago athletics has become synonymous with progress, transformation innovation and resurgence, thanks to the unmatched determination and courage of student-athletes who have donned a UIC uniform in the past. The Chicago Collective leverages the power of the UIC community, fans, alumni and supporters of UIC athletics to equip UIC student-athletes with the tools and resources necessary for them to excel both during and beyond their time in Chicago. More importantly, we seek to help UIC student-athletes maximize their NIL opportunities the right way, without ever compromising the values of the University of Illinois Chicago and the legacy of all those who have donned the Blue and Red.
