The Emil and Patricia Jones Convocation Center (the JCC) is a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Chicago, Illinois. Completed in 2007, the arena is home court for the Chicago State University Cougars men's and women's basketball teams. The arena replaced the Dickens Athletic Center, which only had capacity to seat 2,500 persons.
The convocation center is unique among Illinois university athletic projects, because Chicago State University did not have to raise any money for the project. The money was allocated from the State of Illinois treasury by then Senate President Emil Jones.
