U.S. Senator Dick Durbin will visit the ICC East Peoria Campus on Tuesday, July 2, from 1:15 to 2 pm.
The visit is in conjunction with a bill written by Senator Al Franken and sponsored by Senator Durbin which was introduced in the Senate this week. The Community College to Career Fund Act would create a competitive grant program to fund partnerships between two-year colleges and businesses, training individuals for high-demand industries, such as health care, advanced manufacturing, clean energy and information technology.
Senator Durbin will be touring the AIT Building and some of its lab classrooms and will hold a press conference at the conclusion of the tour. Employees are invited to attend the press conference.
