City Colleges of Chicago announced a $5 million investment at the West Side Learning Center, the satellite campus for Malcolm X College. Renovations will be made to the existing classrooms for students, and the 3,000 square foot multipurpose room for the community. Renovations for the revitalized center will include two new biology labs, an enhanced adult education space, upgraded classrooms and computer labs and renovated nursing labs to support STEM programming. The community center space will be renovated, with additional space built out on the first floor. The West Side Learning Center currently offers adult education, professional and personal development courses, and an 8-week Basic Nursing Assistant program. Once complete, the West Side Learning Center will support additional basic STEM courses that feed into higher education and career pathways in growing fields, and link residents on the west side to degree programs. The West Side Learning Center, located at 4624 W. Madison Avenue, will be complete by Fall 2020 with funding from City Colleges. Construction is scheduled to start in the spring.
