"Welcome to Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC). Our students, whether pursuing one- or two-year degree and diploma programs, short-term career pathway certificates, high school equivalency diplomas or continuing education and customized training, have hopes and dreams for a better future through education. For their hopes to be realized and dreams to come true, their learning must be purposeful and meaningful to build a strong foundation of success.
"Every course and personal encounter is a critical piece that builds the foundation of success. Therefore, a student's understanding of the importance of learning as much as possible from each course is crucial. Education is a journey, and it requires students to stay on track and build upon what they have already learned. The knowledge gained enables them to prepare for other opportunities along the way.
"My colleagues and I are committed to helping each student pursue an education that leads to a meaningful career. Our students' success will enable them to sustain their families and contribute to the vitality of their communities.
"All of us at NICC believe our students can go as far as their engagement in and commitment to education and training will carry them. We are here to partner with them to fulfill their hopes and dreams."
