Kish in the Community
Kishwaukee College is visible in many ways throughout the district—our staff sit on local boards and committees, volunteer at the many non-profits, and share expertise when needed in many ways. But to get a glimpse into just how completely woven into our community Kishwaukee College really is, all one has to do is visit local business and industry and see how many of THEIR employees are alumni of Kishwaukee College. We at the College are doing just that—visiting local business and taking a snapshot of our alumni who are available at that time to pose for a picture. Take a look at the people who smiled for our Kish-Camera!
Local schools and Kishwaukee College are linked together in many ways! Many local teachers and school administrators are Kishwaukee College graduates or took one or more general education classes at Kish while at a university. Classroom Paraprofessionals are also often Kishwaukee alumni. Plus, the Continuing Education department offers the CPDU classes that local teaching faculty need to meet state requirements. Pictured are just a few of the Rochelle Middle School faculty and staff who have taken classes through Kish. All in all, Kishwaukee College and Rochelle schools make education a priority--together!
Local communities and Kishwaukee College work together in a variety of ways—the KC Centers offers training to local business, the Continuing Education department brings classes directly into the local communities for residents, the Adult Education and Transition Programs helps residents get back on track, and many community members received at least part of the education at Kishwaukee College! Pictured are just a few of the Kishwaukee College alumni who work for the City of DeKalb.
