Wilbur Wright College was established in 1934 by the Chicago Board of Education as one of the system of three city junior colleges designed to serve the post-secondary educational needs of Chicago residents.[2] For a three-year period during World War II, the U.S. Navy leased the facilities and trained thousands of men as part of the Electronics Training Program. The college remained in its initial location at 3400 N. Austin Ave. until moving to a new campus in 1993.


In 1966, Wright and the other city colleges were reorganized into a new community college district, named the City Colleges of Chicago, with its own Board of Trustees and taxing authority. This system includes colleges which, in turn, are a part of the State system comprising 40 public community college districts and 49 individual colleges.


Wilbur Wright College is host to the Scholars at Wright program, a great books program funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.Wilbur Wright College is host to the only ABA (American Bar Association)-approved Paralegal Studies Program at a public college in the City of Chicago.


The most common industries for people who hold a degree in one of the 5 most specialized majors at City Colleges of Chicago-Wilbur Wright College are Computer Systems Design (555,382 people), Elementary & secondary schools (250,212 people), General medical and surgical hospitals, and specialty (except psychiatric and substance abuse) hospitals (153,996 people), Colleges, universities & professional schools, including junior colleges (147,325 people), and Insurance carriers (94,479 people).


The competition is the culmination of the real-world skills the students have learned during their first semester in the engineering success seminar, which aims to prepare students for successful college and professional careers.


Wright College of the City Colleges of Chicago is proposing a two-year initiative to enhance our offerings in Latino/a Studies and to bolster our newly-formed Latin American and Latino/a Studies Program. This supports our mission as a Hispanic Serving Institution as research indicates that graduation and retention rates are improved when students see their own experiences reflected in the classroom and their college communities. The project will entail three phases: 1) research and new course design; 2) faculty development to enrich previously existing humanities courses with Latino/a content; 3) partnerships with community organizations and transfer institutions. Our goal is to improve the quality of humanities teaching and learning at our institution.


Green manufacturing and urban agriculture were the hot green topics discussed at the first Greenforce Intiaitive gathering on May 17th at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. The gathering was in conjunction with the Chicago Green Collar Jobs Initiative 4th annual summit and participants were from Chicagoland community colleges, non-profit organizations, state agencies and our foundation partners.


Even though green manufacturing and urban agriculture stole the show during this meeting, the theme really focused on partnerships, and how the Greenforce Initiative, local community college partners, training providers and other community organizations need and can work together to ensure the green economy is inclusive and effective in creating good, family-sustaining green jobs. 041b061a72
