The OIA serves the educational goals of the City Colleges of Chicago by increasing awareness of CCC’s programs and outcomes among external and internal stakeholders, and enlisting them in support of CCC’s mission. OIA works to build strong relationships with opinion-shapers, community leaders, decision-makers, alumni and institutional funders to solidify CCC’s reputation, foster a supportive regulatory and legislative climate, and secure financial contributions to its student programs. In doing so, OIA helps drive enrollment, retention and graduation, and helps maximize the value CCC delivers to taxpayers.
