Austin Talks: Chicago State University campus coming to West Side

Looks like our neighborhood university will experience some growing pains in the near future:
Plans are underway for a Chicago State University campus on the West Side, but specific details about the project have yet to be released.

The extension school will be built thanks to a $40 million state grant spearheaded by then state Sen. Rickey Hendon (5th) and Sen. Kimberly Lightford (4th) in 2009.

Chicago State University is seeking proposals from qualified firms for a “market validation and financial feasibility study” for the West Side campus until June 26.

The proposals will help the school determine the best location for the campus and what courses and programs are in demand on the West Side.
Via Curbed Chicago!
