From the President


Welcome to Kankakee Community College! We take great pride in our culture of caring, and we are eager to get to know you, listen carefully as you share with us your goals and dreams, and then help you achieve them. The KCC mission is “Enhancing quality of life through learning,” and we do this by offering our students and community clients high quality and rigorous academic and career programs. We also offer numerous opportunities to connect with fellow students, faculty and staff. From personal experience, I know that when we work together, we achieve much more than we thought possible. During your academic journey at KCC, you will find people and programs that meet you where you are. From there, you can follow a path toward immediate entry into a career, or continue on to a four-year bachelor’s degree. We offer a quality education at a fair cost, and we will help you meet your goals. There are a lot of great things happening at KCC. If you haven’t already, please visit us and begin the conversation about your future. You can start with an information request at​. Thank you!
