From the President

Welcome to College of DuPage. Since 1967, more than one million people have turned to us for education, job training and cultural enrichment. This remarkable College serves more than 26,000 students every semester, making us the largest community college in Illinois, and third largest among the state’s public colleges and universities.

When students enroll at College of DuPage, they know they will find more than 240 degree and certificate programs taught in small, personalized classes. Our outstanding faculty and staff are there every step of the way to maximize your time at COD.

We are constantly developing and implementing new degree and certificate programs, and enhancing our award-winning 3+1 program that offers options for bachelor’s degrees completed on our campus at significantly reduced cost in partnership with some of the area’s top universities. 

The $550 million transformation of our teaching and learning facilities has continued with the opening of our new Student Services Center, the Culinary & Hospitality Center and the renovated Berg Instructional Center. Ongoing work at the McAninch Arts Center, the Seaton Computing Center, the Physical Education Center and the Student Resource Center will lead to vastly enhanced learning, cultural and social opportunities for students and community members.

With the help of District 502 residents, we have strengthened this institution and positioned ourselves as one of the top community colleges in the country. Whether you are a first-time student seeking an affordable education, in the workforce seeking to improve your job skills, or simply searching for personal enrichment, College of DuPage is truly the best value for your educational investment.

Best regards,
Dr. Robert L. Breuder,
College of DuPage President
