Malcolm X College and School of Health Sciences
The new Malcolm X College and School of Health Sciences provides state-of-the-art learning and support spaces for this community college that focuses on the hands-on training of allied health professionals. Situated on Chicago’s Near West Side close to the Illinois Medical District, the college sits adjacent to the previous facility and provides a complete campus of buildings, all linked internally, that set the tone for future development in the neighborhood.
Academic classrooms, teaching laboratories, recreation facilities, a conference center and support spaces are organized around a student union, library and external roof garden. The facility is crowned by an eight-story tower that represents a “virtual hospital” and enables students to learn through simulated, real-world healthcare scenarios. The project also includes a 1,200-car parking structure.
Moody Nolan, serving as the Architect of Record, built upon Cannon Design’s concept for this project. As a major provider of training for Chicago’s health professionals, the new facility will help Malcolm X prepare students for both further study and careers through its College-to-Careers initiative.
