ICCTA Advocacy Award
Dr. Alice Marie Jacobs
Danville Area Community College
Dr. Alice Marie Jacobs is the first recipient of ICCTA's newest honor, the Advocacy Award.
Dr. Jacobs serves as president of Danville Area Community College and also as the 2005-2006 chair of the
Illinois Presidents Council. During her term, she has led the Council through difficult times
as federal and state funding for important programs has been jeopardized.
Her efforts to publicize issues affecting community colleges (such as the
proposed sale of the state’s student loan portfolio) have benefitted
students, employees, and trustees alike.
Dr. Alice Jacobs accepts ICCTA's inaugural Advocacy Award from ICCTA president Tom Bennett.
Jacobs has been especially effective in building coalitions with the higher
education community, the media, and other advocacy partners. She has reached out to such groups as Women Employed
and faculty unions to protect funding increases for our schools. Another highly
visible success was the resolution of personnel management issues caused
by pension reform.
