Read City Colleges’ Annual Reflection: Looking Back, Moving Forward


A Message From Chancellor Juan Salgado:

Just over one year ago, City Colleges of Chicago released our 2021-2025 Strategic Framework and Plans: a unified framework and seven unique college plans. Together, the documents represent the future of City Colleges: ambitious, innovative, and driven by equity—the same characteristics I would use to describe our students, faculty, and staff today.

Since the strategic plans were launched, I’m proud of the progress our teams have made to fulfill our commitments—both to our students and to our city as a whole. 2021 was undoubtedly unpredictable and difficult at times, but still, our students, staff, and faculty persevered.

Join us in reflecting on their successes by reading the update here.

You are also encouraged to review our annual progress at, including our KPIs, my annual reflection letter, and those of our college presidents.

With deep appreciation,
Juan Salgado
