Today In Illinois Research

 

Uniquely UIUC

Every year, we ask our units to submit a high-level summary of their impact, achievements, and plans for the year ahead. It is always rewarding to take a deep dive into these reports, but this year, one point in particular just jumped off the page: More students work in the Research Park than at any other university research park in North America—more than 850 at any given time.
