City Colleges of Chicago

Reopening Plans

Ensuring the health and safety of our college community and supporting our students in reaching their academic goals are our top priorities.

Over the last several weeks, our colleges and district team have worked to develop re-opening readiness plans that will allow City Colleges to offer a limited number of classes and select student services in-person, and will also allow our colleges to serve as study spaces for students.

These plans are guided by standards and recommendations of the Illinois and Chicago Departments of Public Health (IDPH and CDPH), the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The plans are also iterative — they will evolve as conditions and public health guidelines demand and as we receive thoughtful feedback from the City Colleges community. We thank the cross-functional teams who worked collaboratively to develop these plans.
