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 in order to enlist their 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, to foster a supportive regulatory and legislative climate, and to 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.
