Illinois Eastern Community Colleges District #529 (IECC) is located in a 3,000 square-mile area of southeastern Illinois near the Illinois-Indiana border. The multi-campus district includes Frontier Community College at Fairfield, Lincoln Trail College at Robinson, Olney Central College at Olney, and Wabash Valley College at Mt. Carmel. Each of the colleges is located in a small-town setting, with convenient access to larger cities in Illinois and Indiana. The colleges serve as centers for educational and cultural excellence, attracting not only recent high school graduates but also many older students who are upgrading their skills, earning the first two years of a four-year degree, or participating in plays, concerts, and seminars. The College District also includes a highly successful Workforce Education program which provides short-term training for some 10,000 employees each year at plant sites throughout the state of Illinois and in other states and countries as well.


Eastern Illinois University, located in the east central Illinois community of Charleston, is recognized among the Midwest's top quality public universities. Eastern is ranked fifth among all public Midwestern universities with master's programs, according to U.S. News and World Report's 2002 guide to "America's Best Colleges." Eastern is the only Illinois public University to be distiguished in this way. The University enrolls more than 10,000 students annually who can select from a broad range of academic programs and degree offerings. The Eastern experience can best be described as "Big Enough to Matter, Small Enough to Care." Students attending Eastern receive a high quality education characterized by small class sizes taught by a dedicated and caring faculty who place student success as their top priority.
