For the past seven years, City Colleges of Chicago has honored those in our community who make our classrooms and offices brighter.

From faculty members who ignite passion for learning, to dedicated staff members who ensure smooth operations, to students who embody a spirit of collaboration and support, the recipients of this year’s Luminary Awards shine as beacons of excellence across our campuses, our district office, and our city.

We proudly celebrated our 2024 Luminary Award recipients on Thursday, April 25, recognizing and applauding their inspiring efforts and significant contributions at the 2024 Luminary Awards Reception Ceremony.
