St. Augustine College
St. Augustine College is an independent, bilingual (dual-language) institution of higher education created under the auspices of the Episcopal Diocese to make the American system of higher education accessible to a diverse student population with emphasis on those of Hispanic descent; to strengthen ethnic identity; to reinforce cultural interaction; and to build a bridge to fill cultural, educational, and socio-economic gaps.
About St. Augustine College
On October 7, 1980, the Illinois State Board of Higher Education granted operating authority to the first bilingual institution of higher education in Illinois: St. Augustine College. This educational setting is unique in Illinois, and one of a few in the country. St Augustine College is an independent college with four sectional centers in Chicago and one in Aurora. Our Institution maintains modern facilities, the latest instructional materials, highly qualified faculty and a nurturing environment with a personal touch. We offer excellent academic programs that include five Bachelor’s Degrees and a wide range of Associate Degrees. St. Augustine also offers workforce development training through our Institute for Workforce Education.
