IACCT is a nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for the purpose of promoting social welfare by strengthening, developing and correlating the work of its Members (the Community College Boards) and promoting civic betterment and social improvements allowed by law. In carrying out its Purpose, the Association respects the need to preserve the unique communities and business partners of each Community College and within that framework helps them join together to utilize the strength of the group.
For 50 years, Iowa Community Colleges have provided a trained workforce to Iowa Business, added to Iowa Gross State Product, and increased Student Earnings. Iowa Community Colleges give students improved employability and career enhancement, leading to a strong Iowa economy. Iowa Business, through unique partnerships with Iowa Community College, has access to high-skilled individuals for high demand occupations.
Positioned all across the state, Iowa's 15 Community Colleges contribute to their local economic development. By collaborating and working together with local business and industry, our Community Colleges are vital to our state's regional economic growth and workforce needs.
Every year, the Department of Education releases The Annual Condition of Iowa's Community Colleges. Included is important information on academic programs, enrollment data, student success, and information about the cost of attending and operating our Community Colleges.
