Chicago Public School Activities

Chicago Public School CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett and the University of Illinois President Robert Easter are committed to developing programs that will increase the number of students, particularly underrepresented minorities, from the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) who enroll in and graduate from the campuses of the University of Illinois. As evidence, this website is being launched to document the relationships already in place even as the two systems seek new and better ways to ensure the success of our mutual students.

This website illustrates the depth of the partnership between the two systems in the number and scope of programs offered by the University with the faculty, students, and staff of the CPS. Many of the programs listed here include outreach across the state of Illinois but all have some component offered with the CPS. They range in scope from early childhood literacy, to summer camps for high school students, to scholarships for college to research partnerships.

The list is as complete and current as the information we have, and the website is under frequent refinement as programs evolve. Please contact us with suggestions for additions or corrections.
