Student Support Services

Student Support Services utilizes a holistic approach to create an environment in which undocumented, low-income and/or first-generation, students can thrive and succeed on campus. We provide services that strengthen self-efficacy, resilience, and a sense of belonging.

The University of Chicago has, from its inception, been a place where the best and brightest minds from around the world can gather to shape, ideas, produce new knowledge, and contribute to the betterment of human life. Our community has been deliberately inclusive, because it is from the widest possible range of perspectives and viewpoints that the most innovative ideas can be proposed, tested and debated. We are committed to assembling a community of talented individuals regardless of their backgrounds, financial circumstances, or national origins. This commitment is further discussed in President Zimmer's statement on diversity.
