The Institute contains spaces designed for conducting research, teaching both face-to-face and online, developing multi-media educational resources, working collaboratively, and convening meetings and running conferences related to our mission. 

The Institute also has a full-time administrative staff to support UIC faculty and researchers pursuing external funding, both pre- and post-award, for projects related to our mission. Principal Investigators of successful external grants administered by LSRI receive ICR distributions calculated at 8% of the ICR returned to LSRI in a fiscal year.
