Chicago Connect for Success

The Chicago Connect for Success program began as a collaboration between the Admissions Office, the Center for Intercultural Engagement and Student Success (CIES) and the Student Academic Support Center. It is managed by CIES.

The main goals of the program are to:

  • attract students from Chicago who could benefit from a Luther education
  • retain these students through to graduation
  • provide the sociocultural supports necessary for success

Participation in the program will provide you with the following opportunities:

  • Involvement in Endeavor Together, Luther’s immersive pre-orientation program.
  • Scholarship to pay for all your Endeavor Together expenses. You will need to register and indicate that you are in the CCS program.
  • Opportunity to join the Catalyze student academic success program, if you are not eligible for the TRIO program. Learn more and register.
  • Connection with other students from Chicago as a member of the Chicago Club.
  • Social activities designed especially for the CCS club participants
  • Financial support for academic and professional development activities
