Working Here

Established in 1949, Elgin Community College is more than just a premier educational institution. Offering a wide array of programs and subject matter to more than 16,000 full- and part-time students, ECC provides a work environment that is characterized by ethical practices, open communication, personal accountability, trust, mutual respect, and our commitment to diversity. With our main campus and Fountain Square Campus, both of which are located in Elgin, and our satellite location in Streamwood, we offer the resources essential to academic and professional success.


Diversity Is the Key

Our dedication to the success of every individual in every area of study makes a resounding difference within our classrooms, on our campus and well beyond. By bringing together the ideas, insights and unique cultural backgrounds of people from every walk of life, we expand our vision of the future, and have a positive impact upon the lives of those we serve: students, faculty, staff, administrators and the entire community that surrounds us.

All constituencies are important to achieving our vision. Therefore, we must respect the unique and diverse perspectives each person offers and embrace those differences as the means for developing the strongest learning community possible. We promote individual growth and positive sense of self-worth for all members of the college community.
