Here's Part 3 of WYCC Channel 20's first broadcast, hosted by Program Director Elynne Chaplik. Also featured in this part are James Quinn, Professor of Humanities, Loop College, and Lois Jean Komai, Reading Specialist, Malcolm X College. Includes:

A continuation of the profiles of the individual City Colleges, starting off here with a look at Daley College, 7500 South Pulaski, which was WYCC's first home; it was named, of course, after the city's late Mayor, Richard J. Daley. In addition, Daley offers courses for jobs in various professions including aviation and transportation.

This leads to Elynne introducing a look at some of the City Colleges faculty, starting with an interview with Loop College's Humanities Professor James Quinn, who speaks of his experiences in music and how he relates same to his students - as he says, "I like people to know things," and goes on to explain his technique in teaching. He also does some jazz piano playing as Elynne looks on.

Next, reading teacher Lois Jean Komai explains that it was the "urgency" of what she does that led her to City Colleges in general, and Malcolm X College in particular. Among her criteria is "improving lifestyles" as well as enabling them to get ahead in life.

This is followed by looks at other colleges including Loop College which, in Fall 1982, moved to a new facility at 30 East Lake Street (among the courses are business, management, accounting and word processing); Chicago Urban Skills Institute at 3901 South State Street (teaching vocational and occupational skills, and adult learning); and Chicago Citywide College (opened 1976, and thus the newest at the point; called "a college without walls").

This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, February 17th 1983.
