In 2022, Columbia College Chicago adopted a pair of comprehensive institutional plans to guide its strategic direction.
Building our Brighter Future, a five-year strategic plan approved by the Board of Trustees in November 2022, outlines a series of action steps that will support curricular innovation, student persistence and student development, enhanced engagement with creative industries and communities of creative practice, and the college’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
A new Campus Master Plan developed in consultation with the Gensler architectural and design firm sets out a ten-year vision for reimagining the physical campus to advance the college’s strategic priorities.
On November 16, 2022, President Kwang-Wu Kim and his leadership team hosted a campus presentation about Building our Brighter Future.
