The Institute's calendar for spring 2024 is now closed. We do have some programming funds available. Please submit co-sponsorship requests for funding below.

UIC Institute for the Humanities Co-Sponsorship Request

The UIC Institute for the Humanities welcomes the opportunity to co-sponsor humanities events with other units on campus. The types of events we co-sponsor include lectures by visiting scholars, conferences, symposia, and scholarly panels. We prioritize events with strong humanities content and in which UIC faculty and students play a prominent role either in the planning or in the event itself. Our co-sponsorship may include space (if available), modest financial support (usually $300), limited publicity, or modest refreshments.

Due to limited resources, we are only able to schedule one program per available weekday. Priority is given to programs and events that are co-sponsored or organized by more than one department, program, or group.

We are happy to co-sponsor events even if we are unable to host them in our space; please refer to (and fill out) our co-sponsorship form if you would like us to do so. The Institute is only able to advertise programs we co-sponsor. Note that our advertising schedule has changed: emails are sent out to advertise programs as a group every Wednesday and Friday. Requests may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Our funds and resources for co-sponsorships are limited.  In order to plan ahead and fairly distribute our resources, we invite proposals for modest co-sponsorship requests.  For larger events or conference support, please contact us directly at

We will review co-sponsorship requests for upcoming events periodically throughout each semester. Please fill out the request form at least six weeks before your event.

Please view our calendar to see if your requested date is available.
