Work Ethics

Today’s workforce is demanding and competitive. Employees must not only have good technical skills but demonstrate positive, cooperative attitudes. Kaskaskia College is dedicated in preparing students, as well as existing employees with business and technical skills and also interpersonal skills needed to excel in today’s workplace.
