History and Vision
 

The history of Wright College Humboldt Park location goes back to 1982 when the City Colleges of Chicago Board of Trustees authorized the Chancellor to identify an appropriate location for an adult learning center in the Humboldt Park community. After numerous meetings with community leaders, and working with the City of Chicago Public Building Commission, a site for the new facility was acquired in 1989.                                                                              

Wright College Humboldt Park serves approximately 3,500 students each year, in college credit, adult education, and skills programs. Wright College's Humboldt Park location offers the following:                                                                                   

  • Associate Degree programs

  • Basic Certificate programs
  • Information Technology workshops                                                               

Each certificate and degree is designed as a stackable credential.
