Chicago Colleges and Universities

Chicago has long been one of the most distinguished centers of higher education in America. The University of Chicago, Northwestern University, and other Chicagoland academic institutions have been acclaimed throughout the world, and Chicago's many liberal arts colleges, technical schools, religious institutions, professional schools, and community colleges have set standards for other colleges and universities nationwide. The site of the first nuclear reaction in history was at the University of Chicago, and the idea of a junior college was first poineered by Chicagoans at what today is Joliet Junior College, the oldest community college in America. Chicago colleges, universities, and graduate schools are some of the city's greatest achievements, thanks to the vision, dedication, and scholarship of students and faculty alike.
