United Support Network

A Supportive Community of Students Helping Students!

The United Support Network is a community of students coming together to support each other through life’s challenges and connect around life experiences! 

**In response to COVID-19, we have now created two online video support groups for Summer 2020: Wednesdays from 2-3pm and Thursdays from 4-5pm. Both groups are open to undergraduate and graduate students. Please sign-up below for one of our video groups, and we hope everyone is staying safe during this time!**

Weekly Support Groups

Confidential* and inclusive peer groups, led by trained students, where members can gain support around life’s struggles, form deep connections, and not feel alone in the world as they pursue their goals

Kickback Friday Events

Fun, social, stress-busting events open to both group members and the UIC student body with the goal of building a more connected campus community.
