City Colleges and Wright College administrators recently joined with Humboldt Park Vocational Education (HPVEC) community partners to discuss current programs, plans for expansion, and alignment with high-growth industry opportunities to benefit Wright students.

Led by President David Potash, HPVEC Dean Ken Santiago, Community Relations Liaison Maureen Fitzpatrick, City Colleges Lead Architect Luis Martinez, and College to Careers Dean Bonnie Kang, the meeting highlighted Wright College’s strategic goals and performance, HPVEC programs, early college initiatives and adult education partnerships, the capital expansion process, and new opportunities in the area of information technology (IT) education and training. Wright College is the hub for IT programs in City Colleges’ “College to Careers” initiative.

Celebrating two decades in the community in 2015, HPVEC serves approximately 3,500 students in college credit, adult education and skills programs. HPVEC’s Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) program has a job placement rate of more than 85 percent; HPVEC is working to increase the number of students receiving manufacturing credentials of economic value through collaboration with Daley College’s College to Careers manufacturing leadership.
