Knowledge at Work: The University of Illinois at 150

Type:Campbell Gallery Duration:Temporary

(date) 9/12/2017–12/21/2018

The exhibit will look at ways the University has, over its history, been an active participant in dialogues with community voices locally, across the state and country, and internationally. The ways the University serves the people of Illinois and responds to changing educational philosophies and priorities have been—and remain—critical to issues of access and equity. Our curator has researched three distinct time periods in the first century of the University’s history in which far-researching decisions shaped the institution we value today. The exhibit team continues to collaborate with campus units to identify artifacts that document these stories.
