Displaced ITT Technical Students and Employees
The abrupt closing of over 130 locations of ITT Technical Institute on September 6 has an incredible impact on the students and the families of the employees. The students saw ITT as a viable way to obtain their education, gainful employment and provide for their families. Hopefully, the students affected will choose to continue their education. Higher education is the path to a better career; creates a knowledgeable workforce and a great community to work in and live.
The 18 members of the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities are dedicated to assisting these students continue their education. You may click on the following links to find information specific to any GCCCU institution which has developed a plan to assist ITT students.
