Improving Lives

Improving the lives of all our citizens.

America’s Urban Campus (AUC) colleges and universities are active throughout the City of Chicago, providing programming support to community organizations; leveraging the talents of their students and faculty through internships, clinical practicums, student teaching; undertaking research on urban problems in cooperation with neighborhood groups and foundations, and providing enrichment programs for youth. In early 2020, the member institutions provided details of their programs, represented on the heatmap below. One map shows the extent of the combined institutions across the city and region. Additional maps provide detailed information for each institution. Highlighting each data point with a cursor will provide the information on the program, institution, and address. (Note: because of the COVID-19 pandemic, some of these programs may have been temporarily halted, or moved to a virtual format.)
