UIC will create a resilient campus landscape supportive of a variety of life, such as plants, animals, and people.
The term biodiversity refers to the variety of all forms of life such as plants, animals, and microorganisms in an ecosystem. In its commitment to being a biodiverse campus, UIC will take steps to protect and support health and diversity of ecosystems on campus. An institution as large as UIC, we have the potential to educate and inspire students, faculty, staff, and neighbors through our thoughtful and sustainable approach to increasing biodiversity in our open spaces.
