Chicago Loop Alliance released a new study, Higher Education in the Loop, to present and analyze data describing the economic and social impact of the twenty-two higher education institutions located in the Loop and South Loop areas of the City of Chicago. CLA began studying higher education in the Loop in 2003, and the new data should be read as an update to CLA’s 2004 and 2009 higher education reports.
Chicago Loop Alliance presents a Leadership Forum exploring the findings of a forthcoming study on the Loop's educational landscape. Panelists will discuss the Loop Education Study findings; importance of higher education in attracting investment into Chicago; the importance of design and urban amenities to attract students; and how Chicago-based companies benefit from a vast talent pool of local graduates.
Fellow marketers, #rejoice! Our beloved social media will take center stage in the Loop later this month with the return of Social Media Week. But before you fire off that tweet to share this wonderful news, let me fill you in on everything you need to know.
