Iowa’s 15 community colleges have a unique mission when it comes to the access and success of students. That mission includes educating anyone who is willing to be educated, no matter their background, ability, belief system, or identity. Once enrolled, our mission is to meet each student where they are and offer the services and supports they individually need to be successful.
