About Community Engagement

We support a campus culture that encourages meaningful partnerships with community residents and stakeholders to understand their needs and priorities, guide our research, foster inclusive education and advance equitable access to cutting-edge clinical care in ways that serve to maximize the health and well-being of all people of Chicago, the state of Illinois and beyond.

Community Engagement Coordination Council

Members of the council include:

Government Relations

The government relations teams of the University and Feinberg's clinical affiliates work closely with community leaders to advocate for legislation, funding, regulations and programs that put our patients' needs first.
