Inspiring and transforming lives since 1972
For 50 years, Windward Community College has been educating future entrepreneurs, scientists, dreamers, artists, and builders. WCC is celebrating its golden anniversary with a goal of raising $1 million for scholarships—to help all students fulfill their dreams of a college education. The college is kicking off its 50th anniversary year with two events. We hope you will join us!
COVID-19 & Pandemic Response Administrative Assistant, Hawai’i Department of Health
"Windward Community College played a huge role in shaping my future. The guidance from faculty and experience gained working on the school newspaper helped launch my nearly 40-year career in journalism and communications. After decades of news and sports broadcasting, I am now in charge of pandemic communications for the Hawai’i Department of Health."
retired, Student Parent Counselor, Windward Community College
"I enrolled at WCC as a non-traditional student with 16 years of hotel management experience. Windward presented an amazing experience of self development, academic learning and the vehicle through which I realigned my professional future. The career counselor became my mentor, the Writing Center guided me through academic writing and TRiO SSS tutored me through math. I was treated with professionalism, patience and diligence that was the foundation of my academic achievements through a master’s degree at Hawai'i Pacific University. I have fulfilled my dream of serving WCC students with the same respect and guidance I was recipient of so many years earlier."
