- The Southern Illinois Collegiate Common Market (SICCM) administrative office is housed in Building B. Organized in 1973, SICCM is a not-for-profit organization which provides a means of sharing human and material resources in higher education. Through cooperation, more effective programs can be initiated and duplication of costs can be avoided. Working together, the consortium has been successful in the creation of innovative delivery systems, increased educational opportunity and better accessibility to higher education for all people in the region. The region served by SICCM comprises a large segment of the southern portion of the state of Illinois. The geographic area of SICCM covers all or part of 18 counties. This area stretches over 100 miles north to south and 100 miles east to west. Because the regions of the five cooperating colleges are large, traveling is an integral element of the consortium program. Completion of these programs may require travel up to one hour or more to clinical affiliates and to the SICCM lab/classrooms.
The consortium includes six participating institutions. Members of the consortium include:
- Southern Illinois University (both Carbondale and Edwardsville campuses)
- John A. Logan College, Carterville
- Kaskaskia College, Centralia
- Rend Lake College, Ina
- Shawnee Community College, Ullin
- Southeastern Illinois College, Harrisburg
