Community Colleges for Iowa is the “doing business as” name for a variety of collaborations and organizations across Iowa’s 15 Community Colleges. Together, we strive to advocate with one voice for accessible excellence in higher education.
For 50 years, Iowa Community Colleges have provided a trained workforce to Iowa Business, added to Iowa Gross State Product, and increased Student Earnings. Iowa Community Colleges give students improved employability and career enhancement, leading to a strong Iowa economy. Iowa Business, through unique partnerships with Iowa Community College, has access to high-skilled individuals for high demand occupations.
Iowa's Community Colleges do more than simply educate students: we also enrich and serve our students' local communities. Providing skilled workforce training, we encourage economic development that affects the well-being of our state.
Every year, the Department of Education releases The Annual Condition of Iowa's Community Colleges. Included is important information on academic programs, enrollment data, student success, and information about the cost of attending and operating our Community Colleges.
