Welcome to UChicago Educator Outreach

The University of Chicago offers a wide variety of programming for K-12 and post-secondary educators and their students through many different organizations on campus such as the area studies centers, the Smart Museum of Art, the Oriental Institute and the Neighborhood Schools Program. This site is a collaborative effort by these affiliates to make it easy to stay informed about professional development programs and to connect to resources. We invite you to:

  • Look through our list of affiliated centers, museums, and organizations to see what each has to offer K-12 and post-secondary teachers and students.
  • Use our events calendar to find upcoming educator workshops or schools programs.
  • Contact an outreach coordinator at one of our centers to discuss collaboration, find a speaker or student assistant for your class, or suggest a new resource.

We’re glad you found us and we look forward to hearing from you!
