Shinhan Distinguished Faculty

Every year, UIC invites a number of distinguished visiting faculty from around the world to give public lectures and hold two-week intensive seminars. Since its inception in 2006, the Shinhan Distinguished Faculty Program has hosted 24 visits by leading scholars and experts. Participants have included winners of the Nobel Prize, world-renowned novelists, OECD officials, presidents of elite universities, and influential scholars in disciplines across the humanities and sciences. The Shinhan Distinguished Faculty Program is designed to offer UIC students the opportunity to interact closely with international luminaries in small class settings.
