Elgin Community College serves over 9,000 students at every stage of their educational journeys, including university transfer programs, career and technical education, continuing education classes, and adult basic education. As a community, we pride ourselves on nurturing a welcoming campus where every person—students, staff members, faculty members, and campus visitors—feels valued. The work of each ECC employee is central to the college’s mission, and as an employer, the college fosters a positive environment through professional challenges, excellent benefits, and opportunities for recognition and camaraderie.
An employee in this classification performs work of considerable difficulty by overseeing the college’s Communications Office (as part of the marketing and communications department) and its major initiatives, including planning and implementing communications strategies to promote, enhance, and protect the college’s image and reputation, convey accomplishments and initiatives, and assure a positive image through an aggressive media, social media and public relations agenda. Work requires the ability to handle a crisis or urgent situation at a moment’s notice. Direction is received by the assigned manager.
