East St. Louis Community College Center (ESLCCC) is a center providing the opportunity for residents of economically deprived East St. Louis, Illinois in the United states to attend community college classes within their home community. It is located adjacent to the East St. Louis Center of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in East St. Louis.

History and background[edit]

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[1] and Kaskaskia College[2][3]
