Why Morton?

  • Why Morton?
    • Morton College has the distinction of being the second oldest comprehensive community college in Illinois. The pioneering spirit that established this learning community continues to drive Morton today as a Hispanic Serving Institution for Berwyn, Cicero, Forest View, Lyons, McCook, Stickney and other communities. 
    • Morton College is located in Cicero, a western border suburb of Chicago, only eight miles from the heart of the business and cultural center of this great Midwestern city. Chicago offers a complete array of entertainment venues, including six major professional sports teams plus the beautiful Lake Michigan recreational area. 
    • As an institution of higher education, Morton College is committed to the development of its employees and encourages them to participate in life-long learning activities. 
    • Morton offers salaries and benefits which are commensurate with the Chicagoland Community college system. We have a wonderful work environment that promotes continued professional development, provides stability, and strives for excellence.
