Richland Community College in Decatur, Illinois serves about 4,000 undergraduates and several thousand non-degree students from surrounding Macon County and parts of seven other Illinois counties. Its welcoming open-door policy means anyone seeking higher education can enroll. Richland offers courses within six divisions ranging from business and technology to correctional education and the health professions, and provides two levels of professional certification as well as associate degrees that often serve as a bridge toward entry into a four-year institution. A comprehensive Learning Resource Center includes academic advisement, free tutoring, an interlibrary loan program, a mathematics enrichment center, and much more. And Richland just keeps growing: in the 2000’s alone, it added three new wings to the main campus, as well as a new fitness center. Furthermore, Richland’s Cooperative Education Program combines its resources with those of other area community colleges to grant students the widest possible range of opportunity. Regional high school students can even save time and money and explore career options early by engaging in a dual-enrollment option.
