Join the Reinvention Initiative

Now’s your chance to join a Reinvention team for the fall semester 2014. We have opportunities both at the district office (Reinvention) and at the colleges (Reinvention7) to work with your colleagues to be a part of the change that’s moving City Colleges of Chicago forward. The projects that we will be working on during the fall semester fall into the following categories;

  • Placement and Remediation – This work includes research and additional development of the most effective ways to move students to college readiness. Topics to be addressed include placement methods, learning communities and co-requisites, embedded tutoring, and work on alignment of curriculum to college readiness.
  • Enrollment Management – Here we’ll explore all aspects of student intake, supports and completion. Our focus will include admissions, registration, first year experience, caseload management approaches to student support and models for group and faculty advising.
  • Pathways – Work on the continual improvements of the new semester-by-semester program maps, education plans and other enhancements to our student pathways and the new “Student GPS.” Aspects of this work include 15 to finish, ensuring program relevance, block scheduling and whole program enrollment and all of the communications and training needed to implement these changes.

All of this work builds on the reform efforts of faculty, staff and students from all seven colleges who have been on Reinvention teams over the past three years. To learn more about Reinvention’s work during that time, visit or if you have specific questions, email us at
