THANK YOU FOR A GREAT YEAR!

2021 officersAfter more than a year of Zoom meetings and social distancing, nearly 250 trustees, presidents, administrators, students, and award nominees celebrated community college excellence in person at ICCTA’s June 4-5 convention in Bloomington-Normal.

Attendees reconnected with their colleagues, participated in leadership development training, congratulated ICCTA's 2021 award winners, and elected and installed the association’s officers for 2021-2022:

  • Jon Looney (Black Hawk) -- president
  • Dr. Maureen Dunne (DuPage) – vice president
  • Maureen Broderick (Joliet) – treasurer
  • Bishop Wayne Dunning (Richland) – secretary
  • Bob Thompson (Sauk Valley) – immediate past president (not pictured)

They will join ICCTA's new Executive Committee, executive director Jim Reed (far right), and staff in implementing the association's newly adopted 2022 Strategic Plan.

 #CCLiftUp for equity and diversity

The tragic circumstances surrounding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis makes clear yet again that systemic discrimination and unjust racial disparities continue to plague our country. 

Those of us who work tirelessly for good through our community colleges and what they represent must stand united with those afflicted against the base instincts of others among us that seek to divide, denigrate and subjugate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other differences.

The best way to give hope to those who have been victimized is to share what you are doing at your college and in your community to uplift people of color and those who are under-represented. We welcome you to submit your #CCLiftUp stories to ICCTA at [email protected], and we will share them with our ICCTA community.
