Become a part of our legacy.

The Excel Center programs are free, non-profit centers serving UIC students who represent a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, degrees, and career goals. We strive to make an impact with each student using the limited and dwindling state resources allocated, while balancing the academic, learning, and financial needs of each student. We also rely on the support of generous friends who want to make an everlasting positive impact with our students and our programs.

There are a number of ways that you can give of your time and resources to support our life-changing work. Whether you're interested in supporting student scholarships, professional development opportunities for our team, or new programs and services, we are so grateful for your contribution to the success of our programs.
