A two-year public institution of higher education, Waubonsee Community College (WCC) was originally founded in 1966 when school districts in Kane, Kendall, LaSalle, DeKalb and Will counties voted to establish Community College District 516. The school was named after Chief Waubonsee, a Pottawatomie Native American who lived in the area during the 1800s.
