The Strategic Plan is comprised of goals such as "UIC will offer an outstanding education at all levels to a diverse student body...will engage with the people, communities, and institutions of Chicago and other great cities of the world in ways that will transform lives". Accessibility to education is one of UIC's guiding principles. One of the goals of UIC's Strategic Plan is to secure resources needed to achieve its goals from a wide variety of sources and use those resources wisely (Goal 6).  The plan explicitly states that UIC should incorporate cost-effective energy conservation and sustainable design principles into all projects and meet LEED standards.  UIC is committed to diversity and through its Great Cities commitment, partnerships such as sustainable cities is part of that vision for engagement.
