Chatfield Supports Work Study Program
May 15th, 2013
For the past year, Chatfield College has created opportunities for high school students at DePaul Cristo Rey to fulfill their corporate work study program requirements at the college’s downtown campus.
“This program has been a great opportunity for DePaul Cristo Rey and Chatfield College. Having high school students working at our campus gives them an idea of what is happening in the real world. There are so many professional opportunities available and these young students are in a position to interact with not only our faculty and professional staff, but also our Chatfield students,” states Wanda Hill, Site Director of Chatfield’s Findlay Market campus.
Chatfield College has offered liberal arts coursework to Associates Degree seeking students in Brown County and Cincinnati since 1971. A $5 million capital campaign is currently underway at the Catholic college and will support the renovation of 1544 Central Parkway as the new, permanent, downtown campus, in addition to increasing the existing endowment and improving buildings on the St. Martin campus.
As Chatfield enrollment continues to increase, the college looks forward to furthering its work relationship with the Clifton high school. “The Cristo Rey students are filling a need that we have here at the college, while learning valuable skills. It’s good for our Chatfield students to see these younger students working hard to offset the cost of their high school education," said Hill.
The college’s front desk is staffed twice weekly by Cristo Rey students.
