Cook County Higher Education (CCHE) has prioritized the work necessary to create a learning environment where every student can succeed in learning and earning the education they desire. Our intention is to counteract racist and other discriminatory systems that prevent Black, Indigenous, People of Color, persons with disabilities, the LGBTQIA+ community, and others from getting the education they desire to reach their full potential.
CCHE is searching for a consultant to help us fully develop a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility action plan. That plan will be concrete, strategic, and will hold our organization accountable to fight discrimination in our education systems. We promise to be transparent with our process as we strive to be a community asset for this work. If you are interested in the steps we have taken to date click here.
