Your donation can keep a student in college, right here in our community where they live and work.
Cook County Higher Education (CCHE) has been providing quality services for the past sixteen years. Look what you have helped us accomplish!
- Over 532 people have earned an accredited certificate or degree – that’s 10% of our county’s population.
- Over 1200 residents have received workforce training that moves them forward in their careers.
- The new North Shore Campus provides an opportunity to increase degree and certificate programs using local instructors, Interactive Television, and collaboration with high quality regional colleges and universities.
- Students have a place to study, use high speed computer access (not readily available in our community), work with mentors, and take advantage our office resources including financial aid.
- CCHE is the affordable alternative to a college campus, and as a non-profit organization, we can be flexible in our programming, directly addressing current employment needs.
Cook County Commissioner Sue Hakes states, “CCHE does an excellent job of providing a variety of training and education, enabling residents to fill jobs and create career opportunities, allowing them to remain in Cook County. In doing so, CCHE plays a critical role in the economic development of our community.’’
