Conaway Achievement Project

The mission of the Conaway Achievement Project (CAP) is to help low-income, first-generation college and special needs students actualize their maximum potential and persist toward graduation. The objective of the CAP program is to provide services that not only promote the well-being of students but also assist them toward achieving personal and academic goals. The Conaway Achievement Project is a federally funded TRiO Student Support Services program.

We serve students who are:

  • First generation college students
  • and/or Come from a limited income background
  • and/or Students who have disabilities

CAP offers a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere in which participants can study, receive academic help and socialize. Project advisors provide personal and academic counseling, referrals and support. We also offer a workshop series, book and laptop loan services, a computer lab and a lounge for a quiet study environment. To utilize all of the above-mentioned services, you must fill out an application and be admitted into the program.

If you need assistance with classroom or campus accommodations for documented disabilities, please visit Service for Students with Disabilities (SSD) located at 623 S. Wabash, Suite 304 or call 312-369-8296.
