Dr. Dan Barwick, College President

President Dan BarwickOn behalf of the College, I welcome you to one of the finest institutions of its kind: we are physically small yet nationally recognized, we offer an excellent education at a truly affordable cost, and our faculty and staff offer personalized attention that is second to none. Lives are changed by what happens here - including yours!

I came to this college because it is unique: tucked into a scenic corner of rural Kansas, the college has real personality, with a rich history of outstanding fine arts and sports achievement, in a historic community that is friendly and vibrant. If you are looking for an outstanding education at an institution that will prepare you for the workforce and to be a lifelong learner, you’ve found it at Independence Community College.

Each year, we prepare students for a new career, for further education, or for the pursuit of a rediscovered passion. While here, our students find that learning and development aren’t limited to just the classroom. Our students are doers, not bystanders - many enjoy participation in our student clubs, sports, and local events. We offer both residential and non-residential options for our students, but in both cases, I hope you’ll consider our close-knit campus your home away from home.

While you’re here, I hope you’ll ask questions, get to know your professors, and above all, learn to love learning. I want to hear about your adventures here. Feel free to send me an e-mail. Like all of us at the college, I’m here to make you a success. We’re glad you’re here!
