Did you know that in 1966 when the Community College was first established it was originally called "Area X Community College”? Then in 1969, the college board of trustees decided on a new name—"Kirkwood Community College," to honor Samuel J. Kirkwood, Iowa’s governor during the Civil War years.
One of the college’s greatest honors occurred in 1982, when Kirkwood became a board member of the League for Innovation in the Community College, a consortium of 19 of the nation’s finest two-year colleges. With campuses in both Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, and center locations in every county represented within its district, Kirkwood Community College is one of the largest community colleges in the state.
