America's Urban Campus
America’s Urban Campus (AUC), a consortium of 22 not-for-profit Chicago-area colleges and universities, recently released the results of an in-depth study on how Chicago’s higher education system impacts the city, establishing Chicago as a global destination for higher education and post-graduate employment. The study, conducted by Anderson Economic Group, LLC, and funded by The Chicago Community Trust, surveyed Chicago’s AUC colleges to determine how the schools collectively benefit students and faculty, impact the workforce and support local businesses. According to the AUC findings, Chicago is a premiere education hub in the United States and beyond.
