Resources for administrators

The ALRC provides support to administrators in all adult education content areas funded by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS). Some service and support are also open to administrators in the Secretary of State (SOS) Illinois State Library/Literacy Office and citizenship programs in the New Americans Initiative (NAI).
