History & Background
ESLCCC opened in January 1999, replacing Metropolitan Community College, which had been closed by the Illinois Community College Board for irregularities in its operations. It is operated by the Southern Illinois Collegiate Common Market, a consortium of five Southern Illinois community colleges and the Southern Illinois University Carbondale and Edwardsville campuses. The Center provides classroom instruction from Southwestern Illinois College, Kaskaskia College, and Shawnee Community College.
