Supporting Our Students as they Work toward their Goals

City Colleges of Chicago students are used to overcoming challenges, but 2020 has created greater obstacles than ever before.

  • For students who were already housing and food insecure, the onset of Covid-19 meant an even harder time gathering basic resources for them and their families.
  • Because of the economic downturn, many of our students need more help paying their tuition in order to keep the academic momentum they worked so hard to create.
  • Students are stressed – they’re taking classes in a new format, helping children at home with their own e-learning, caring for family members, working full-time or looking for jobs, and, like many of us, simply trying to navigate a world that seems to bring a new challenge every week.
  • Most classes moved online, so more students than ever need vital technology like Wi-Fi hotspots and laptops.
