About Morton College
Morton College, the second oldest community college in Illinois, was founded in 1924 to meet the educational demands in the growing communities of Berwyn, Cicero, Forest View, Lyons, McCook, Stickney and other near western suburbs. Recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HIS), Morton’s campus includes an extensive collection of Hispanic influenced art. Additionally, the Hawthorne Works Museum includes a collection of artifacts depicting the area’s history as the former “electric capital of America.”
