Message from the Chancellor

Welcome to Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, THE Community’s College.

I often liken education to a light because I believe it illuminates a path forward. It unveils possibilities and opportunities, as it did for 18-year-old Danea Kimmins, a recent EICC graduate.

“In 16-weeks, I earned a Fundamental Welding Certificate, and it changed my life,” she said.

That’s what we want for you, too. And we’ll help you discover your path, no matter what you choose - a short-term certificate, career-ready diploma, or a two-year associate’s degree. We promise you the same top-notch education and training we’ve been delivering since 1965. And the best part? A high quality education doesn’t have to carry a high price tag.

At EICC, we see our role as a connector. We link your career goals and dreams to regional business that are seeking skilled workers and provide great jobs.

We play a similar role if you plan to transfer to any of our four-year partner colleges. EICC gives you a foundation of education and skills that seamlessly connect to your next step, and sets you off on a path to success.

At EICC, you enjoy the support, services, flexibility, and future-focused programs to take your education and career to the next level.

EICC faculty and staff care very much about your success, and that is our ultimate mission. We are thrilled you’ve joined our community.

Believing in you always,

Liang Chee Wee, Ph.D.
Interim Chancellor 
Eastern Iowa Community Colleges
