ICC Pays it Forward…Tech equipment donations benefit Norwood Primary School

Category: Technology Services

ICC recently donated 42 Gateway desktop computers, 45 flat screen monitors and 21 desktop speakers to Norwood Primary School in Peoria.

The donations are part of a recycling program which has allowed ICC the chance to rotate its computer stock and get refurbished computers and equipment into the hands of the schools and other institutions in need.

Norwood District 63 IT Coordinator Cindy James says the donation allowed the school district to replace all the computers, monitors, mice and keyboards in Norwood Primary School’s lab.

“As a low-income school district, it can be challenging to find the resources to meet the technology needs of our students,” James explained. These computers will be used daily for technology instruction for our K-4 students and allow us to comply with the demands of computerized testing. We greatly appreciate receiving these computers from Illinois Central College.”

ICC has donated its computers for more than a decade. The timing of the donations all depends on the needs of the community and the availability of stock. Preference is given to educational facilities and to those other institutions which will use the computers for educational purposes.

In the past year, ICC has given computers to the Salvation Army, Peoria Christian School, East Bluff Community Center and Norwood Elementary School, just to name a few.

The college generally keeps a waiting list of schools and other facilities requesting the refurbished computers. Recipient organizations receive equipment which is restored to its original condition or better and must agree in writing not to re-sell the computers.

New College Regulations Policy now in effect

Category: Campus Safety

Effective immediately, officers of ICC’s Campus Police Department will begin enforcement of the recently adopted College Regulations Policy. The policy outlines standards of conduct for everyone on ICC property, including students, employees and visitors.

The College Regulations Policy covers a wide range of improper conduct, including improper parking, smoking, loud music, noise, disorderly conduct, assault, theft, alcohol/drug possession and other violations.

ICC officers have the discretion to issue Regulation Violation Notices (RVNs) for violations of the policy. There is a set monetary fine for each particular violation. When an RVN is issued to a student, a report will be forwarded to the Dean of Students for follow up. A College Regulations Policy Appeals Committee has been established to handle RVN appeals.

All regulations and violations are outlined in the College Regulations Policy, which can be found online by clicking here.

For questions, please contact the ICC Campus Police Department at Ext. 5223.

Category: Employee News

Register for one of these ICC media training sessions…

Wednesday, September 3 – 10 am – 12 noon – Room 203, Ag & Industrial Technologies Building


Thursday, September 11 – 2:30 – 4:30 pm – Room 203, Ag & Industrial Technologies Building

What if a reporter calls your department looking for information or wanting to interview a faculty member or student? What if a TV crew comes to your class unannounced? Or a reporter calls to interview you?

Learn about the ICC Employee Media Policy and how to appropriately direct media calls you might receive. You’ll also learn what attracts media attention and how ICC’s Marketing & Communications staff can work with you to spread the word about ICC programs and events. Discussion will also include how to develop key messages and clearly communicate those key messages. Skills addressed in the workshop can be applied to everyday communication, not just media encounters. This session is open to all ICC employees, not just those who might serve as an “official spokesperson” for the College.

Register through Organizational Learning at organizaitonallearning@icc.edu or 694-5442. Please indicate which date you plan to attend.
