Book Dedications

faculty books laid out on a table

The university’s core missions focus on promoting learning and discovery. The College of Engineering’s book dedication initiative provides a way to capture the multiple dimensions of the learning and discovery experienced by our own faculty members as they progress through their careers.

When faculty members are promoted to a new faculty rank, the College invites them to select a book that has had a profound effect on them as scholars and as human beings. The book may be, but need not be, related to their research or area of expertise. All selected titles are added to the UIC Library’s collection bearing a bookplate that recognizes the faculty member and explains his or her motivation for choosing the book.

We hope this initiative will allow members of the UIC community to benefit from works that have helped our faculty members along their professional and personal trajectory. Books dedicated to date are listed below by academic year. (Note: the most recent year of promotions may be pending approval by the UIC Board of Trustees.)
