Working at Waubonsee

Our People: Your partners in learning

Waubonsee is committed to the hiring and retention of quality faculty and staff who are connected to the college’s culture of collaboration, professional growth and student success. To do this, we work to provide compensation consistent with peer institutions, enhanced benefits and training opportunities.

Every member of Waubonsee’s faculty and staff has an important job to do, and each takes pride and finds meaning in being part of an exceptional college community. We subscribe to the principles of human resource management, which promote opportunities for employees to cultivate self-development, enhance job knowledge and skills and advance leadership qualities in a collaborative environment that promotes respect and inclusivity and celebrates diversity.

At Waubonsee, appreciation is an essential part of how we create community and honor the hard work and dedication behind all of our success. We know that everything that happens at the college is possible because of our employees and their focused involvement in our mission, vision and core values.

Looking out for your future. Waubonsee's leadership looks forward to the future — one that's full of success, growth and learning. As we continue to strengthen and build our campus network, we also shape brighter futures for our students and community.

Our Places: Growing something great

Since 1966, Waubonsee has been a center of pride and progress for the residents and businesses of the Fox Valley and District 516. Waubonsee Community College's District 516 (pdf) includes portions of Kane, Kendall, DeKalb, LaSalle and Will counties. In addition to our Sugar Grove Campus, we have campuses in downtown Aurora, adjacent to the Rush-Copley Medical Center and Plano. Each of our campuses offer students and employees a unique experience. From the lush landscape of our Sugar Grove Campus to the excitement of downtown Aurora, Waubonsee and its campuses has something for everyone.  

Our Programs: Designed to fit every lifestyle

Waubonsee is a learning-centered institution that is highly focused on student success. As we have seen our college grow throughout the years, Waubonsee’s central focus remains our mission, which is based on the premise that education is the cornerstone of a literate, democratic society. In our ongoing commitment to serving the residents of our district, we understand that learning is a lifelong process and and we support that process through our core values of accessibility, service, quality, innovation and value.
