Community-Based Organizations

Elmhurst Stands for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We stand united with community-based organizations (CBOs) and select Chicago high schools to offer an affordable pathway for our city scholars to become global leaders.

As a university, we are committed to serving traditionally underrepresented populations, which include first-generation college students of color.

We strive to create a network of people and communities working together to enable each student to be successful. How? By using our innovative scholarship opportunities, powerful support system and valued partnerships to meet all of these students’ needs.

You can find out more about our process using the links below:
