Mayor Emanuel Joins DeVry To Dedicate New Chicago Campus Building

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined DeVry and its community of leaders, students and faculty, as well as clinical affiliates and employers today to dedicate its new $30 million, 87,000 square-foot Chicago campus building. The campus, located at 3300 N. Campbell Ave., is home to DeVry University and its Keller Graduate School of Management, Chamberlain College of Nursing and DeVry University Advantage Academy, a dual-enrollment, dual-degree high school for Chicago Public School students.

A global provider of educational services, DeVry’s institutions offer career-oriented education in business, technology and health care. The new building expands DeVry’s Chicago campus presence to 140,000 square feet, and is the education provider’s latest investment in a city in which it has a long history. DeVry University’s first school was founded in Chicago in 1931. Chamberlain College of Nursing was founded in 1889 in St. Louis and expanded into Chicagoland in 2008. Today, there are more than 51,300 DeVry University and Chamberlain College of Nursing alumni in the Chicago area.

“This facility will allow thousands of students to gain critical skills that will prepare them for immediate jobs in the workplace,” said Mayor Emanuel. “A robust educational system is essential as we build a well-educated and globally competitive workforce, and DeVry is an important part of this mission.”

Prior to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mayor Emanuel toured the 40-classroom campus to view its advanced science and technology features, including two science labs, two electronics labs, three networking labs, five nursing labs, a library, a web graphic design studio and an advanced technology classroom with full tele-presence capabilities.

The Mayor spent time with Chamberlain College of Nursing students in the SIMCARE CENTER™, a high-tech lab where students get valuable hands-on experience by interacting with patient simulators. He also met with students in DeVry University Advantage Academy High School, a partnership with Chicago Public Schools that enables students to earn a college-level associate degree at no cost to their families while they finish high school.
