The Civic Committee of The Commercial Club of Chicago is a private, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to stimulate and encourage the growth of the area's economy and its ability to provide for its people. The Civic Committee pursues economic development in its broadest sense by supporting efforts to improve the general business environment - the structure and processes of the local economy - so that businesses can prosper and generate jobs. The Civic Committee also works to protect and improve those parts of the local environment on which employers depend: sound and effective local government services, superior transportation and communication networks, strong education and training systems, excellent health care delivery and reasonable local tax and regulatory structures. The Civic Committee gives special attention to efforts and plans that relate to the entire Chicago metropolitan area in the belief that the City of Chicago and its surrounding territory constitute a single and interdependent economic region. In pursuing these goals, the Civic Committee seeks out partnerships with other public and private sector organizations so as to minimize duplication of efforts and to utilize the strength of coalitions representing different constituencies.

The Judd A. and Marjorie Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences (WCAS or Weinberg) is the largest of the eleven schools comprising Northwestern University, located in Evanston, Illinois and downtown Chicago, Illinois. It was established in 1851 and today comprises 25 departments and many specialty programs. WCAS enrolls students in its classes from all of Northwestern's undergraduate schools, including the Medill School of Journalism, School of Music, McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, School of Communication, and School of Education and Social Policy. All faculty members at Weinberg teach undergraduate students. About 3 percent of student enrollments are in courses taught exclusively by teaching assistants, mostly in small introductory courses in foreign languages; all other courses are taught by professors.[2] The number of men and women at Weinberg is about equal; 30 percent of undergraduates belong to racial or ethnic minorities. Students also come from all 50 states; Illinois is the home of the largest number of students, followed by California, Ohio, and New York. Seven percent of Weinberg students are from foreign countries.[2] WCAS has 15 interdisciplinary programs that offer minors or majors. These include American studies, European studies, Integrated Science (ISP), Legal Studies, Mathematical Experience for Northwestern Undergraduates (MENU), Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences (MMSS), and the Writing Major. Each of these programs has special admissions requirements.[2] Each freshman at WCAS is required to take two "Freshman Seminars," 15 or 16 students in each, focused on the development of writing and discussion skills. A freshman's typical schedule each quarter includes a small class of 15 students, a class of 20-25 students, and two larger lecture courses. Last year fewer than 10 of more than 2000 courses in Weinberg College enrolled over 300 students.[2] Each year, faculty members associated with several of Northwestern's graduate programs teach undergraduates. Professors from the Kellogg School of Management offer courses in accounting, finance, and marketing especially designed for Weinberg students. Law School faculty each year teach several undergraduate courses in Weinberg as well. WCAS also has special agreements with Chicago's major cultural institutions, including the Field Museum, Art Institute, Adler Planetarium, Chicago Botanic Garden, and American Bar Foundation, to offer courses taught by Chicago-area experts
