Message from the President

Dr. Laurie Borowicz

Welcome to Kishwaukee College!

At Kish, we are focused on serving the educational needs of our students. Student success and helping our learners achieve their educational goals is our top priority, as it has been for the past 50 years. 

The mission of a community college is to serve its local communities, and Kishwaukee College is proud to partner with many businesses and organizations to support the local economy.  By working collaboratively with K-12 educators, NIU and other universities, economic development organizations, businesses, and community leaders, we partner to create high quality educational programming and experiences that prepare our students for an ever-changing world.  Our partnerships support all of us in creating a strong, resilient, and competitive local economy.

In 2018, we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary. As we look back over the past 50 years at the College, we are grateful for those committed individuals who have provided a solid foundation for Kish and a clear mission to serve our community. We look forward to building on the legacy of offering affordable and meaningful education, accessible to all the residents and communities of District 523.

I hope you will join us as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary. The events and activities we have planned throughout the year emphasize a half-century of Pride, Passion and Purpose. I am proud to be the President of Kishwaukee College. Please join us, and become a part of the continually unfolding Kish story.
