We're in this together

Take care, REACh Community:

 We are thinking of you. These are definitely confusing times for all of us, but we know that staying connected and staying positive will get us through this new normal. Our days may look a  little different day, but know that we’re still here to provide the services needed to help you, our adult learners, as well as our partner schools. 


 Please feel free to reach out to any of the colleges or universities by clicking on their links. If you need to reach a member of our board, Please click please click on their profiles as well. 


Because things are changing light and speed, we are trying to take it one second, one minute, one hour at a time as we are all trying to figure out  and swing this whole “staying in “thing!

Mission statement

REACh is a consortium of academic institutions, businesses, and other interested organizations and individuals whose mission is to present educational opportunities to adult learners in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Central to the mission is a commitment to provide them with information and accessibility to educational and financial resources.

Continuing education is necessary to compete in today’s global marketplace.

Consider these facts:

  • The adult learner population is the most rapidly growing segment among college populations
  • Nearly 50 percent of all college students are over the age of 25 years
  • The average adult will change careers 7-10 times during their lifetime. These changes will require new skills, knowledge, and values. Education can help bridge the gap in meeting these continuously changing competencies.
  • Productivity increases when employers support continuing educational opportunities for their employees
