University of Chicago

The University of Chicago’s impact on American higher education is legendary. Founded by John D. Rockefeller with the first classes held in 1892, the University of Chicago developed the four-quarter system, first conceived of adult extension courses in the liberal arts, and, in 1943, forever changed business education with the first executive MBA program. At UChicago, campus and community are interconnected in partnerships that serve both to support the community and train future policymakers, social workers, artists, and social and political leaders.

The University of Chicago Charter School, run by the Urban Education Institute, serves Chicago public school students with four campuses for students in pre-kindergarten through high school. While the University contributes specifically to the metropolis, the city in turn serves as a living laboratory for addressing social issues on a national and global scale.

UChicago’s Career Advising and Planning Services (CAPS) office offers eight pre-professional programs called the Chicago Careers In (CCI) programs – including Chicago Careers in Journalism (CCIJ).
Each CCI program is designed to supplement the University’s liberal arts curriculum with additional resources and training to prepare students for diverse graduate schools and career options.
