Mission Statement
The Illinois College Landscaping Department is dedicated to caring for campus aesthetics and supporting a learning environment with a diverse landscape. The Landscaping Department works to achieve these goals through a Landscape Committee which helps determine the best methods for maintaining and improving campus garden areas, trees, and landscape plants. This process is managed through the efforts of the Landscape Supervisor and the Facilities Management department. Together, they provide oversight and daily supervision for the department.
