2020 has been an unprecedented year.
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted us all, but it has been especially devastating for under-resourced communities – and the lives of many City Colleges of Chicago students.
As students struggled to persist in their academic and career plans, yet another tragedy changed our world. The killing of George Floyd fueled persistent and long-standing protests surfacing important questions about race, which the nation is only beginning to confront.
Because City Colleges of Chicago is uniquely positioned to help close the equity gap our students face, and to help directly address issues of race and inequality, the City Colleges of Chicago Foundation is hosting a series of conversations about why CCC matters as we collectively move forward in this moment.
