A Unique Approach
Founded in 1978, we are an innovator in creating model programs that translate visions for school improvement into concrete action. As an academic educational unit of Northeastern Illinois University, we are in a unique position to respond to the needs of these communities.
We are all both teachers and learners.
Everyone plays an essential role in educating today’s children. Parents, teachers, students and neighborhood communities are active partners in our programs. Through these partnerships we seek to address real needs and improve educational equity and excellence.
Vision into Action
Northeastern Illinois University's Center for College Access and Success is the largest school improvement organization in Chicago. Founded in 1978, the Center develops collaborative partnerships that engage the entire community to help students succeed academically and socially.
Approaches That Work
The Center brings together teachers, parents and administrators, and staff from community agencies, universities, arts and cultural organizations, and businesses to share knowledge and resources.
