INDIGO makes UIC's scholarly INtellectual property in DIGital form available online in an Open environment. Indigo is also a UIC official color.
INDIGO collects, disseminates, and provides persistent and reliable access to the research and scholarship of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Faculty, staff, and graduate students can deposit their research and scholarship - unpublished and, in many cases, published - directly into INDIGO. Departments can use INDIGO to distribute their working papers, technical reports, or other research material. Contact us for more information (email@example.com).
The University Library supports publishing and scholarly communication through this repository and through our journal publishing platform Journals@UIC. These are part of the library's efforts to support eScholarship@UIC.
All theses and dissertations deposited from Fall 2011 onward are available in INDIGO.

Building Trust: Reflections of Adults Working With High-School-Age Youth in Project-Based Programs (Elsevier, 2019-01)A program leader’s ability to build trust with youth is critical in effective project-based programs that serve as interventions to support skill development. However, there is little empirical research on the trust-building ...
A predictive model to probe the impact of gravity and surface tension on rising wetting thin films (American Chemical Society, 2019-02)Utilizing kinetic Monte Carlo simulations, we developed a three dimensional Ising lattice gas model to reveal the wetting mechanism of a liquid film rising along a vertical substrate. The model takes into account the impact ...
