2020 has definitely been a year that will remain in all our memories forever. If you were just getting ready to start or have just recently started along the path to a college degree, you may be thinking about reconsidering. Even with the economy slowing down there are still lots of great, high-demand and high-paying jobs out there. Waubonsee can be your path to them.
As the area’s community college, Waubonsee Community College recognizes the economic hardships experienced by its residents and students due to the ongoing pandemic. That recognition has led to the development of the Waubonsee Pandemic Relief Plan. This plan is aimed at providing economic relief to both district taxpayers and students.
Artist, author, and entrepreneur Vivian Greene wrote, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain…” Our nursing students could have easily decided to wait out the storm, but they accepted the challenge to learn to dance in the rain. Since the spring of 2020, students have learned many dances. They have learned the dances of patience, collaboration, adaptability, and perseverance.
Waubonsee Community College will host a virtual career event on Tuesday, December 15 from 6 to 7 p.m. Featuring up-to-date information on employment trends, the event is designed for anyone looking to launch a new career or improve the one you currently have.

The end of the year is often a time of reflection for many.
In 2018, we surveyed the community and received responses from more than 1,500 people. In this needs assessment, we learned that our stakeholders did not know the scope of our offerings and many hoped for new programs to be developed at the college. Feedback from this survey helped us create our FY2020-2022 Strategic Plan which includes new program development as one of our key drivers with the goal to design and deliver community-responsive programming.
