125 Years of Inquiry and Impact

In recognition of the University of Chicago’s founding in 1890, the University of Chicago celebrated 125 Years of Inquiry and Impact in 2015. The anniversary was an opportunity to reflect on our history, our community past and present, and the founding principles that continue to guide our direction.

The celebration took place throughout Autumn Quarter 2015 with events held across campus in the divisions, schools, and other units, beginning with the Opening Convocation on September 21 and culminating in the 525th Convocation on December 11.
