Partner with the IOP

The IOP receives more than 100 partnership requests each year. We have developed several processes to ensure that our partnerships are meaningful and effective for all involved. Our partnerships often fall into the following four categories:

  1. Event or Program Publicity
  2. Event Partnerships
  3. Fellows Program Partnerships
  4. Other Partnerships

Please see our IOP Partnership Best Practices to learn more about our partnership strategy and approach.

Event or Program Publicity

If you would like the IOP to publicize your event or program, please contact Lucy Little, Producer, Digital Communications, at lalittle@uchicago.edu, and Pat Quinn, Communications Intern, at patrickquinn@uchicago.edu. Please note that the IOP publicizes events related to our mission and from our campus partners in the weekly “From Our Partners” section of our Monday email newsletter. In your email, please specify the following:

  • date, time, and location of the event
  • RSVP information
  • the timeframe for promotion
  • any relevant event websites
