  • PREPARED FOR SUCCESSAt Kankakee Community College, we believe that developing well-prepared students is essential. Thats why we chose outstanding faculty and staff, some of whom studied at prestigious universities like the University of Chicago, Yale, Kent State and Harvard. Faculty know that working hard in the classroom can put students on the right path in life.

    We believe that developing well-rounded citizens is part of the educational experience. Thats why faculty take time to develop a series of critical thinking opportunities, which helps students prepare for the university setting once they transfer.

    It also leads to community and civic engagement later in life.
