The program’s courses are developed and taught by experienced members of WCC’s faculty, many of whom are published scholars with Ph.D.s from major colleges and universities.

Break Time is Work Time at WCC

Foundation Looks Within for Support

Last winter, for the first time the WCC Foundation couldn’t offer scholarships to all qualified WCC students who applied. Over 500 WCC students depend on Foundation scholarships to continue their education each semester.

They are some of the most generous supporters of the Foundation. Last year, 127 WCC employees gave money to the Foundation.
