The college is committed to enriching the lives of students, employees, and community by working together to create opportunities to discover new passions, share knowledge, and embrace diversity.

Waubonsee draws its students from a diverse community of learners that includes more than 425,000 residents across 624 square miles in Chicago’s western suburbs. Minority students make up more than 40% of the college’s student body, and the college is proud of its designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution. Credit and noncredit educational offerings are delivered online and in person across a four-campus network.
