City Colleges of Chicago replaces 4 campus heads

Nearby Olive-Harvey College @ 10001 South Woodlawn Ave. is one of those four campuses who will get a new President, however, a search will continue for a new President at Kennedy-King College @ 6301 South Halsted St.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday the new presidents will have the autonomy to tailor solutions to the needs of the system's approximately 60,000 students. He added they will be held accountable for improving student performance.

The colleges getting new leadership are Malcolm X, Olive-Harvey, Truman and Wright.
The presidents of Daley and Harold Washington colleges will retain their jobs, while the search continues for a new Kennedy-King College president.

Chancellor Cheryl Hyman says a change in the perception of City College is needed to reverse an enrollment decline. She said getting new college presidents is the key to that.
