UChicago ECo is a hub for connection, communication, and support. It forges connections within the environmental research and sustainability community and extends opportunities for you to connect with that community as well. It aims to communicate the diverse resources and events from around UChicago and beyond, and support efforts in these areas.

We invite everyone to explore and get involved in UChicago ECo.
