Harper College Promise Scholarship

  • A scholarship offered to every student in Harper's district that would fund up to two years of college.

Frustrated at his previous job, Drew Kong decided to go back to college. Today, the new graduate of Harper College's Fast Track program boasts four supply chain management certificates and a full-time position with a leading global security provider.

Harper College’s new Back Porch Revue – a nod to American folk music of the early 20th century – is gearing up for its debut concert. The performance will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, December 17, in the Performing Arts Center.

When Harper College opened its doors 50 years ago, it created a steady pipeline of graduates – nurses in particular – who have gone on to provide high-quality, community-focused care at Northwest Community Healthcare. The Harper College Educational Foundation recently recognized about 50 of those alumni during a reception at NCH through its Stand Up and Be Counted program, an initiative that celebrates area employers that hire Harper alumni.

  • Feb 21, 2018: Risking Everything: A 1964 Freedom Summer Exhibit at Building Z - Avante

    Exhibit: Friday February 2 - Thursday, February 21, 2018

    A display commemorating "Freedom Summer," the 1964 effort by civil rights activists to integrate Mississippi's segregated political system. College students and volunteers from the North, along with black Mississippians, risked their lives to overturn racist institutions.

    Residents and volunteers were met by extraordinary
    violence, including murders, bombings, kidnappings, and torture.
    Much of this was covered on national television and focused the
    country's attention on civil rights issues for the first time.

    Public outrage helped spur the U.S. Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

    Special Event:

    Lecture featuring Michael Edmonds author of "Risking Everything"
