Emphasizing the "community" in community college

"Community" is part of our name for a reason: it's also part of our mission. Every day we do our best to enrich your life through more than education, offering experiences and events for every interest, age and stage of life. Associate degrees are only the beginning at Waubonsee!

Learning is a Lifelong Process

We proudly support the Lifelong Learning Institute, an open membership organization for adults age 50 and older who are actively engaged in the pursuit of knowledge. In our stimulating peer-learning environments, members plan, lead and participate in courses, course-related trips and social events. LLI members are encouraged to volunteer in some capacity in support of the organization. It's easy to join and only $25 per year.
