Welcome!

Dean Terri E. Weaver

As the eighth dean of the UIC College of Nursing, I am fortunate to lead a diverse intellectual community of scholars, practitioners and staff who are dedicated to a mission to transform health, healthcare and policy. We are committed to advancing nursing leadership by preparing students to meet the challenges of providing high-quality care to diverse populations in a cost-effective manner, and to generate new knowledge through innovate, relevant research. Currently, more than 1,500 baccalaureate and graduate students are learning to apply science to solutions at our six Illinois campuses. And as one of seven health sciences colleges and the care-delivery enterprise that make up UI Health, nursing students engage in interprofessional classroom and clinical opportunities.
