The Research Park is excited to announce that we are holding our 2021 Block Party event in person. All University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students are invited to join us for the event on Wednesday, September 2 from 5PM-6:30PM
The Block Party gives students a chance to interact with Research Park employers in an informal setting. This isn’t a career fair (no need to bring a resume). The Block Party event is meant to give students an opportunity to network and learn more about Research Park.
