A Plan to Keep Growing

The diversity of our district demands diversity in the academic programs and student support services we offer, and by extension, the students we enroll. Our goal is to make all our policies and processes as welcoming to students as possible. 

Although just the beginning, Waubonsee’s Equity Plan was completed and submitted to the Partnership for College Completion, as part of the Illinois Equity in Attainment initiative with over 20 colleges and universities participating across the state. 

The Illinois Equity in Attainment Initiative (ILEA) Equity Plan is intended to serve as a roadmap for outlining how Waubonsee Community College will work toward closing gaps in degree attainment for low-income, first generation, African American, and Latinx students to increase equity and degree completion.

Pronouns Matter

We know that each student has a unique set of circumstances, experiences, and intersecting identities. As such, our campus community fully embraces the relevance and practice of identifying individuals' preferred pronoun use. We are committed to fostering a campus environment built on mutual respect and building a place where everyone can belong.
