The Chicago Odyssey Project . . .

… a Bard College Clemente Course, sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Council and the University of Chicago Civic Knowledge Project, offers a college level introduction to the humanities (philosophy, literature, U.S. history, art history, and critical thinking and writing) to low-income adults, all expenses paid (tuition, books, CTA fare, and on-site baby-sitting).

The class meets Monday and Thursday evenings, 6:00-8:00 p.m. from September to May, at Donoghue School, 707 E. 37th St. (Classes are also available on the North Side and in Spanish on the West Side.)

Students who successfully complete the course earn 6 hours of college credit from Bard College, a prestigious liberal arts college in New York, transferable to virtually any college or university.

We are now accepting applications for fall. Candidates should be highly motivated and committed, 18 years of age or older, able to read a newspaper in English, and living in a household with income no more than 150% of the Federal poverty level.

It’s about education . . .
It’s about empowerment . . .
It’s about changing your world.
