Chicago State University

Community Outreach and Field Placement Services (COFPS)

The table below shows recruitment and community outreach efforts in which COFPS engaged in during spring 2013 and fall 2013. Office staff visited and distributed recruitment literature to 10 high schools, 13 elementary schools and 2 early childhood sites. The college attended a meeting for principals and distributed recruitment literature there as well. We’ve had hundreds of high school students to tour our campus and we encouraged them to consider Chicago State University for their higher education.  In addition to hosting ACT and writing workshops for students, COFP recruited faculty members for the university’s master’s and doctoral programs. Throughout the year, we host and partake in numerous events in hopes of servicing our students and our outlying community.
