Training undergraduate and graduate students to think critically, rigorously debate ideas, and be guided by evidence are the hallmarks of a University of Chicago education. Our faculty, other academic appointees, and other instructors are critical partners in transmitting our academic values to students at every level and delivering a transformative education.
 
2020 Autumn Quarter Survey
In Autumn 2020, the Office of the Provost, working in consultation with the Committee of the Council of the Faculty and Student Government, conducted online surveys of faculty, other academic appointees, and students to assess experiences related to in-person and remote instruction and to help guide the University’s planning and response to the pandemic.

UChicago Certificates and Other Educational Offerings
To help ensure compliance with new federal guidelines overseen by the Higher Learning Commission, the University has developed a checklist for existing and new non-degree programs. The checklist is designed to facilitate program development and design, provide common definitions and nomenclature, help University units achieve desired learning outcomes, and obtain information the University needs to satisfy new accreditation requirements. For a copy of the checklist or more information, please contact Ingrid Gould or Beth Niestat.
