We are Inspired

About Us

Every day on our campus, you can find inspiration in our students, our faculty and our staff.  Dedicated people turning an ordinary classroom or office into an extraordinary place where learning, self-awareness, and personal development take place. Inspiration from community members like Yvonne Johnson, who inspired children at West Elementary School in Sycamore for many years and, through her generosity, continues to inspire current Kishwaukee College students in science classes. Inspiration from faculty members like Cynthia deSeife, who turned her passion for art education into honors-level coursework for her education students and created an after school program for students at Clinton-Rosette Middle School in DeKalb called ArtSmarts. Inspiration from students who volunteered their time to assist at the annual Foundation Golf Outing and annual Benefit Dinner.

Kishwaukee College students are not only engaged in their coursework, many hold jobs and support families, yet they are dedicated to making extra time to help the Foundation’s efforts and meet the community members who help advance the mission of Kishwaukee College.
