President’s Message

Iowa Western has been a vital part of the development of southwest Iowa for over a half century. From providing students with the necessary resources to start on a bachelor’s degree; offering services to employers to increase economic development; providing continuing education courses; and offering numerous two-year degrees in career and technical areas, Iowa Western continues to set the standard for colleges throughout the area.

Our reputation for providing quality education and skilled graduates has drawn more and more students to our college every year. I am thrilled that so many residents of southwest Iowa and the Omaha-metro area are turning to Iowa Western for their higher education needs.

Iowa Western has so much to offer! Our staff and faculty truly care about our students, and students benefit from small class sizes and personalized attention. Along with exceptional educational opportunities, Iowa Western provides students with total college experience, complete with athletics, fine arts, and other extracurricular activities. I see lifelong friendships being established between students, and I hope when they leave the college they take with them several special memories of their time here at Iowa Western.

I believe that you will find your learning experience here at Iowa Western to be the best educational experience of your life.
