At the University of Chicago we partner with community–based organizations (CBOs) to help create college–going cultures in underserved communities. The goal of these partnerships is to remove some of the educational access challenges faced by underrepresented students–of–color, first generation–to–college students, and students facing economic hardships. We work with CBOs to support all students' dreams of attending selective colleges.
This page is dedicated to providing resources for CBO counselors and their students. We invite you to engage with us. Use this site to request UChicago information, register for group tours, and request admissions counselor visits in the fall or spring. Please also share with your students the links to CBO–sponsored scholarships and programming as well as current UChicago student profiles and success stories.
