Timeline Screenshot
Waubonsee was established in August 1966 when the electorate of 12 school districts in most of Kane and portions of Kendall, DeKalb, LaSalle and Will counties voted to establish Community College District 516. That means just five decades ago, students made the choice to begin shaping their futures at Waubonsee.

50 Hours of Caring

50 Hours of Caring Button

Waubonsee faculty, staff, administrators and students were challenged to individually - or as a team of no more than five members - complete 50 hours of community service as part of our anniversary celebration. The volunteer or community service work was not required to be connected to one’s educational or academic profession. Giving back to our communities was a great way to celebrate our partnerships and support over the years!
