WHAT IS CICE?

Central Illinois Community Educators (CICE) is a loose but loyal coalition of community partners with the common interests of supporting schools, students, and their families, and sharing best practices with and within the informal education sector. Membership includes representatives from all forms of community education from museums, zoos/nature centers, art galleries, and cultural sites, to public libraries, after school programs, human service organizations, and more. This coalition exists to scaffold learning through the Central Illinois region by serving as a conduit between fellow informal educators, teachers and their students, and community members.
