Located on Chicago’s West Side, Malcolm X College offers a new era of opportunity for students.
To ignite the local workforce, City Colleges of Chicago created a hub for career preparation and training for healthcare professionals.
The facility breaks-frame from a traditional commuter-campus model, offering students a robust array of amenities and programming in a space that pays homage to the life and legacy of Malcom X.
With centralized student support services and installations such as the Social Justice Wing, the college empowers students to achieve their academic goals and move boldly in the direction of their dreams.
A hub for career preparation
The facility centralizes student services, athletics, a virtual hospital and simulation spaces for health sciences under one roof, with amenities to support social gathering and connection.
The state-of-the-art simulation spaces and mock clinical environments facilitate hands-on training, positioning students as attractive recruits for any leading healthcare institution.
In service to the community
The services offered on campus benefit students as well as the surrounding community. A dental hygiene clinic on the building’s ground floor serves as a training facility and community amenity that has served more than 7,000 patients, many with little to no insurance.
An onsite food pantry provides students and their families with food items free of charge. The Wellness Center and onsite daycare support students’ mental, emotional and logistical needs that are often critical to their success in school.
