IVCC announces $2.1 million campaign for CTC technology

Nov. 8, 2011: Illinois Valley Community College will launch its capital campaign for Community Technology Center enhancements at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 in Room C316.

The $2.1 million campaign, entitled “It takes a community: preparing tomorrow’s workforce today,” will provide technological and program enhancements within the nearly 80,000-square-foot facility scheduled to open in late 2013.

“We are committed to making our first new main campus building in over three decades an exceptional facility,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran.

Naming opportunities have been established for individuals, corporations and foundations making donations ranging from $1 million to $25,000 to enhance the facility.

“Private donations will provide the latest equipment and technology in order to make the CTC an extraordinary learning environment,” Corcoran added.

The CTC will be home to: nine career programs including electronics, computer-aided design and renewable wind energy; one-stop student support services such as admissions, counseling and financial aid; Adult Education; and Continuing Education including a proposed Center for Innovation and Opportunity.

Campaign steering committee members include former State Sen. Gary Dahl of Granville, Foundation director Jane Goetz of Ottawa, MAG Global President Daniel Janka of Cincinnati, former Citizen’s First National Bank Executive Vice President Jim Miller of Princeton, State Representative Frank Mautino of Spring Valley, Centrue Bank Market President Everett Solon of Streator, retired lead partner for Deloitte, William Taylor of Winnetka, and IVCC board chair Dennis Thompson of Princeton.

The launch event will include remarks by Corcoran, Thompson and IVCC Foundation President O.J. Stoutner. In addition, the 14-minute campaign DVD will be shown. The public is welcome and refreshments will be served.

The ceremony will precede the regular monthly meeting of the board at 7:30 p.m. Groundbreaking for the CTC is set for 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8.
