CSU Makes Pitch For Obama Library
Posted By: Elynor Moss on June 19, 2014 |
Chicago State University is officially in the running to be the future home of the Obama Presidential Library. CSU submitted it's Request for Qualification (RFQ) document, the first official step in applying to be the home of the library, to the Obama Foundation ahead of schedule last week.
The RFQ outlines the many reasons that CSU would make the best home for the Obama Library.
It's well known that the Library would have a transformative economic impact on the communities surrounding the University. These same communities are where a young Barack Obama first came to be a community organizer with the Developing Communities Project in 1985. Nearly three decades later, the 44th President of the United States has the opportunity to bring the lasting symbol of his legacy back home to the South Side of Chicago.
