Who We Are

KCC employees are a community of professionals as diverse as the students and cities, towns and villages we support. We are proud to have a mixture of employees from all aspects of educational experience, life experience, economic, employment and life histories. Our families live in the local communities and frequently utilize the services we provide.

KCC is a place where success as an employee comes in many forms. It’s hard to argue with the success of our employees and the support they receive when you realize that a KCC welding instructor became the College president and a secretary became the Vice President of Student and Community Services, yet we look at employee success through more than just a career ladder.

We see success in having faculty members whose dedication is observed through innovative online instruction, new and interesting programs and continuing to serve well past when they could have retired to the beach. We also see it in the growth of staff members who utilize tuition reimbursement to complete their education. We see success in the number of professionals who work full-time in a career outside the College and still take the time to educate others through adjunct instruction.

We believe that employment is more than just a paycheck. We believe in supporting the employee’s ability to grow a strong family and future while they are contributing toward a quality educational environment for our students and community. We are committed to providing quality benefits that employees can afford. In addition to cost-effective health care and life and disability coverage, we continually strengthen additional benefits including robust wellness activities, a generous leave program, tuition support and professional development.
