On Friday, April 12, 2019, join City Colleges of Chicago at Harry S Truman College for its first day-long symposium, "Internationalization Institute (i2): Critical Thinking for a Better World." 

The event features keynote speeches by Bukola Adebayo and Melissa Noel, two Pulitzer Center-supported journalists, and opening remarks by Shawn Jackson, president of Harry S Truman College, one of the seven City Colleges of Chicago campuses.

The event brings together City Colleges faculty, staff and students, as well as members of the surrounding community, for an open forum to discuss global issues. Concurrent breakout sessions explore an international focus on teaching and learning, course design, experiential student support, or student-created projects.

It is one of the nation's largest community college districts and the largest in Illinois, with 5,500 faculty and staff preparing more than 100,000 students each year to enter the workforce, pursue higher education and advance their careers. City Colleges serves students on seven campuses: Richard J. Daley College, Kennedy-King College, Malcolm X College, Olive-Harvey College, Harry S Truman College, Harold Washington College and Wilbur Wright College, and several satellite sites.
