The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is Chicago’s only public research university, with 30,000 students, 15 colleges, a hospital, and a health sciences system. With this award, the UIC Social Justice Initiative hosts a day-long symposium to discuss the challenges and possibilities for rebuilding Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria struck in 2017. Composed of panels with experts, scholars, activists, and filmmakers, the symposium places the natural disaster in historical and political context, comparing the response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.
