Discover New Passions
Share Knowledge
Embrace Diversity


Waubonsee Community College opens the door of knowledge, sparks imaginations, and enlightens lives through learning. We welcome the diverse abilities, goals, and experiences of individuals standing on the threshold of discovery. Our success is defined by the dreams we help shape, the opportunities we help design, and the futures we help create.


We constantly redefine what it means to be “the best,” seeking to improve in every area and exceed the expectations of those we serve.

We focus every resource directly on the search for learning, creating tangible benefits in everything we do.

We are actively engaged on the frontiers of education, continuously improving the learning environment for our students and communities.

We view the world from the perspective of those we serve, anticipating needs and striving to exceed expectations while demonstrating a caring, knowledgeable, consistent connection with each individual every time they meet us.

We remove barriers to learning formed by time, geography, education, culture, experience or beliefs to provide a full range of quality educational opportunities for all who can benefit.
