faculty & Staff


custodial services at icc is in charge of daily cleaning, detailing, all floor work and any emergency requests.

the custodial staff has a strong commitment to sustainability and helping in any way they can. whether it be turning off lights to reduce energy usage, helping with the recycling program to reduce waste, or by using chemical-free orbio cleaning products. the staff is also consistently maintaining automatic hand sanitizers in every building to mitigate the spread of bacteria, viruses, and seasonal flu. the efforts of our custodial staff contribute greatly to our campus community’s health and well-being.

we consist of approximately 35 dedicated employees that are spread out to all of icc’s campuses. we work around the clock to maintain common areas, we set-up events, and restock supplies. our efforts keep the classrooms, libraries, dorms, bathrooms, and offices clean, safe, and sanitary. the majority of our custodians are organized into teams. each team has a number of rooms and areas they are responsible for, so it’s likely that you will have the same custodians service your area time after time.
