Wright College Humboldt Park

Kenneth Santiago


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
  • Adult Education - English as a Second Language (ESL) & GED preparation​​​
  • Basic Certificate programs
  • Information Technology Workshops                                                               

Each certificate and degree is designed as a stackable credential.                                                                                                                                   

Wright College Humboldt Park is excited to launch new Information Technology (IT) college-credit courses in Fall 2015. Wright College is the hub for IT programs in City Colleges' "College to Careers" initiative. The College to Careers initiative is designed to help prepare Chicagoans for careers in high-growth industries; more than 24,000 IT job openings are expected to be available in the Chicago area in the next decade.
