Partnership Matters
Join Us Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at Kennedy-King College

City Colleges of Chicago values its partnerships with community organizations, local businesses and international corporations, Chicago Public Schools, and four-year institutions across the city, state, and country. Together, we support the students of our city who look to education as their path to upward mobility.

In addition to the education they receive in the classroom, through specialized programs, internships, apprenticeships, and industry-specific work-based learning opportunities, City Colleges students get access to resources they need, and learn the skills that will take them to the next phase in their education or career. These opportunities would not be possible without our partnerships.

This forum will showcase some of these partnerships, as we discuss best practices as well as growth opportunities.
