History and Vision
The history of the Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center (HPVEC)
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.
As one of Wright College's two campus
locations, HPVEC serves approximately 3,500 students each year, in college credit, adult education and skills programs. Wright College's Humboldt Park location offers the following:
Each certificate and degree is designed as a stackable credential.
Wright's Humboldt Park location 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.
