“Through learning, minds change. We believe by changing minds, we can change the world” is the mission statement of ICC. Led by Dr. John S. Erwin, who became the institution’s fourth president in 2001, ICC strives to change the world
by following five core values: learning, community, integrity, responsibility and excellence. Specifically, the 182 full-time and 392 part-time faculty members and 591 staff members work with nearly 11,000 students to ensure that ICC is a community that provides opportunity for all members to increase their knowledge and skills, build relationships and trust, take accountability for their actions, and achieve more.

To support its faculty and staff in the work of changing minds, ICC provides a host of employee benefits that ensure that faculty and staff members are having their personal and professional needs met, including personal wellness outlets in addition to a number of family-friendly services.
