The UIC Center for Literacy (CFL) works with children and families to ensure lifelong learning and upward-mobility through improved literacy and family engagement. Further, CFL provides literacy leadership locally, nationally, and internationally through research, policy work, evaluation studies, and advocacy.
CFL understands that a community is not just the sum of its struggles but also the hope of its future. We believe strongly in maintaining partnerships and empowering the communities we serve. Many one-time program participants have gone on to serve and/or become employed full-time within CFL.
Though we have made significant efforts in the fight to improve the lives of the families, communities, and other audiences we serve, we see the past 25 years as just the beginning and look forward to continued progress in the future.
