District Vision Education and Innovation District: Anchor Uses


Shared Education Campus After opening small satellite facilities in the City Center, several of the area’s leading educational institutions demonstrated their commitment to sustainability and the Rockford community by partnering in the Rockford City Center shared education campus. Te facility, which offers a full range of post-secondary education, from skills training to four-year degree programs, is the place of learning for thousands of students. Te participating schools market their location in the now bustling City Center as a key student recruitment strategy. Strong pedestrian and public transit connections with the rest of the City Center allow students to enjoy the nearby shops and restaurants on their lunch breaks.

American On-Shoring Institute


Te first of its kind in America, the Institute is a public-private partnership dedicated to repatriating production processes lost to overseas markets. Participating educational institutions, including local colleges and nationally-renowned business schools, analyze supply chains across many industries to identify processes and components that can be competitively manufactured in America. Partner companies located in the institute produce high value-add goods for the domestic and international market. Te firms have identified innovative production processes while also taking full advantage of Rockford’s available labor, tax incentives and proximity to the Rockford Airport and O’Hare. Partnership programs with the education campus across the river help bring new technologies to market. Tis dynamic district thrives off the energy of the employees, students, professors, entrepreneurs, and bright minds who come here to connect, collaborate, and innovate.
