Civic Engagement

Mission-Driven Work

Columbia College's mission calls for active involvement with the urban community and CCAP indeed nurtures college-community partnerships that promote positive social change. As the largest arts and media college in the country - serving over 10,000 students - Columbia College Chicago provides an excellent environment in which CCAP's Urban Missions program can thrive.

CCAP believes that all members of its network - college faculty, college students, teaching artists, community youth, and nonprofit staff - have much to offer each other in knowledge and expertise.


CCAP currently partners with over two dozen community-based organizations to create quality youth arts programs and experiential learning opportunities for students.  For a complete list of partners click here, or explore our community partners by flipping through our comprehensive CBO Book.
