Since it’s formation in 2015, UIU tristate chapter has grown to 35 paid and registered members (including officers). UIU Tristate serves the greater New York City, New Jersey, and Connecticut metropolitan areas.

We’re looking forward to having our fellow Igbo sisters and brothers join us in the Tristate as we exhibit our cultural pride. The Igbo culture and language shall live. UIU makes history every year and this year’s convention will definitely be an addition to the greatness.
