Letter from the Chairman
Creating the Future
An annual report offers us an opportunity to update you, supporters of Columbia College Chicago, on the state of the institution.
Spend some time talking with Columbia students and you’ll learn what shapes their vision of their future: Passion. Creativity. Dreams.
Those Who Do, Teach
Like John H. White, most of Columbia’s faculty members are working professionals in their fields. “They’re who you look up to,” says Kyle Wolff, one of White’s students.
A New Take On Things
When a Chicago ad agency wanted to create a series of short informational films, these Columbia students put their creative expertise to work.
Chicago is known as the home of the blues, and the Chicago Blues Ensemble, a student group, makes Columbia College part of that tradition.
