University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer said UChicago Promise is the answer to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's call to "help improve college opportunities" for public school students.

Emanuel praised the university for a program he says will help young Chicagoans achieve their goals and graduate without a financial burden

The yearly cost of a University of Chicago education is about $61,300, including room and board, tuition, books and fees.
