Recently, the City College of Chicago, one of the largest community college systems in the country, celebrated commencement of its largest graduating class in more than two decades. Nearly 4,000 students are expected to earn an associate’s degree in 2013 from one of the seven schools that make up the City Colleges system – an 80 percent increase since the launch of the Reinvention initiative in 2010 and the highest in more than two decades, according to CCC officials.
Scores of students participated in the April 3, 2013 graduation ceremony, held at the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavilion.
