|What: HBCU Tours|
For several years, THEC has planned and sponsored college tours. These tours have covered both in-state and out-of-state schools. These college tours are designed to give students an onsite view of college life.
During the Fall and Winter, students visit schools within the Illinois and surrounding areas. Approximately 400 students per year take advantage of these tours, which focus on schools closer to their homes. During the Fall and Spring, THEC tours Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Approximately 300 students (primarily juniors and seniors in high school) participate.
These tours provide students with a campus visit and an opportunity to visit African American historical sites. Students are required to keep a reflection journal and to compile written evaluations of each college or university.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to support the on-going efforts of successfully providing these tours to our students. For further information regarding our tours please contact us at (773) 966-1508 or use our contact form.
