Northwestern University and the City of Evanston have scheduled a news conference for later this week to announce a program to bring new training and employment opportunities to city residents.

Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl and Northwestern University President Morton Schapiro are scheduled to lead the Thursday afternoon news conference and outline key details, including program eligibility, potential employment opportunities and goals.

The program is being described by city officials as “a first-of-its-kind” partnership between the two institutions and part of a groundbreaking effort to connect members of the Evanston community with training and employment opportunities in the city.
