How did UNITE start? - Listen about the story in our podcast here!

our mission

UNITE, short for Unifying and Nurturing Individuals through Empathy, is a student-led non-profit organization at Illinois Tech that aims to build a community of empathy on campus and in the world.

 

We aim to do so by:

1. Exploring identities and perspectives through collaborative discussion in our general body meetings.

2. Hosting a series of interactive seminars designed to teach and engage in empathy skills.

3. Producing blogs, podcasts, and other forms of media designed to expand our world view and promote empathy.
 

our vision

to connect people and communities through empathy starting at our very own college campus!

We believe that these are the 5 building blocks of empathy:

Active

Listening

Open-

Mindedness

Bias

Reframing

Emotional

Intelligence

Compassionate Action
