City Colleges of Chicago serves an incredibly diverse student body as a gateway to both academic advantage and the potential of upward mobility. It has long ceased to be a holding ground for those with no other educational option. It is an affordable, quality education for those who seek a better life.
And yet it still can be out of reach.
City Colleges of Chicago matters because it is empowering the lives of Black Chicagoans. It serves a unique and critical role in this community and deserves the attention of the citizens it serves.
That is why in the month of January, the City Colleges of Chicago Foundation is bringing the strength of its seven colleges to bear for a series of live-streaming discussions – Seven Strong: Why City Colleges Matter.
