The Waubonsee Vision 2050 initiative was launched earlier this year.

“With the completion of the 2020 College Master Plan, we began our focus on the ‘next big things,’” said Waubonsee President Dr. Christine Sobek. “With the face of education changing rapidly in light of technological advances and students' shifting wants and needs, we knew the time was right to engage in meaningful dialogue about what the future may hold for Waubonsee and its surrounding communities.”
