We learn from our past and work in the present for our future

Over Four Decades of Learning

Since first opening its doors four decades ago, Kishwaukee College has remained a cornerstone of the communities it serves. Kish, as it is affectionately referred to, offers an ever-increasing variety of programs and services to meet the needs and wants of district residents in DeKalb, Sycamore, Rochelle and surrounding communities — academic degrees for students seeking a transfer to a university, occupational degrees for those wanting a skilled career, preparation for students wanting to earn their GED, and English classes for non-native speakers.

The Community At Large

Over the years, Kishwaukee College has added specialized programs to help local business and industry remain competitive in a global economy, training and support services for dislocated workers, a child care center, personal enrichment courses, community involvement and leadership training.  Beyond offering courses, programs and services, the College has increasingly become an integral part of the community at large. College employees serve on many local boards and organizations, offering their assistance, and often expertise.  The Conference Center gives local organizations, professional groups, business and industry a state-of-the art meeting and training facility. As local communities have grown and developed, Kishwaukee College has remained a constant and vital presence in local residents’ lives.
