Message from the President

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in more than 7.3 million confirmed cases around the world, 2 million in the United States, and 416,000 deaths worldwide. It also led to our Governor issuing an executive directive to shelter in place and close all Illinois community college campuses to the public, leaving us no choice but to immediately move the delivery of instruction to online platforms.

On April 24, the college was the victim of a cyberattack which made completion of the spring semester difficult for students, faculty and staff.

But through it all our employees worked together under extraordinary circumstances and never lost sight of our mission to provide a high-quality, accessible and affordable education that inspires individuals and our community to thrive. To simply say that I’m proud of everyone would be an understatement.

Our annual commencement program was held in a virtual format on May 16 and received rave reviews. (Check out the link below!) Summer session classes began June 10 and the fall term will begin August 14.  

I hope that you will enroll in IVCC classes knowing that the quality of instruction will continue at the same high-level for which our proud college has been known for 96 years.

Explore what IVCC has to offer and never hesitate to let us know how we can help you achieve your academic and career goals. We are your rock and we’re here to serve you.
