    Organization

    What we are all about

    Jackson College is deeply committed to promoting the importance of equity and diversity for all students, staff, and faculty. It is our utmost desire to continue to provide an educational atmosphere that is inclusive to the work of diversity, equity and belonging.

    Our history

    Jackson College offers quality, transformational educational opportunities to prepare students for today’s career fields or transfer to a university.

    Founded as Jackson Junior College in 1928, the College operated as a division of the public Jackson Union School District and was located near the high school in downtown Jackson, Mich. In 1962, Jackson County voters created Jackson Community College as a distinct entity; and in 1964, they passed a charter millage that still helps to fund the College today. Rapid enrollment and program growth in the 1960s spurred construction of a new campus on its present site. In 2013, in light of the College’s decision to begin development of curriculum for bachelor’s degree programs and increased efforts in international studies, the Board of Trustees voted to change the name to Jackson College.

    Today, the College owns more than 500 acres and sits on a scenic rural site six miles south of the city of Jackson, and also operates Jackson College @ LISD TECH in Adrian, Clyde E. LeTarte Center, Hillsdale, and W.J. Maher Campus, Jackson. Online learning opportunities offer education around the world.
