“As Illinois’ largest community college, we feel a responsibility to respond to the requests from the Illinois Community College Board and the Higher Learning Commission to help the students affected by the ITT closing and provide them with an option to continue or restart their education,” COD President Dr. Ann Rondeau said. “These students will have an opportunity to learn about and discuss options for continuing their educational journey, career advising and how to cope with their federal student loan debt.”
