Founded in 2012, the Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual and Reproductive Health (Ci3) at The University of Chicago is a faculty-led initiative to advance sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice locally, nationally, and globally. With a particular focus on adolescents, women, and communities of color, Ci3's goal is to develop new research methodologies, evidence, intervention strategies, and novel solutions to advance human health and well-being.

Game Changer Chicago Design Lab

Ci3's Game Changer Chicago Design Lab is an initiative in which youth collaborate with faculty and university students to create digital stories and games in order to explore health and social issues. GCC uses gameplay and game design to create youth-directed, problem-based and collaborative learning opportunities and outcomes. GCC programs and workshops help youth hone skills in media literacy, critical inquiry, storytelling techniques and game design. GCC receives support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Neubauer Collegium at The University of Chicago.

South Side Stories

South Side Stories aims to raise the voices of African American youth ages 13-24 living on the South Side of Chicago, and create an innovative body of social science research and education to better inform community members who work with youth. South Side Stories is made possible through the generous support of the Ford Foundation.
