History Kennedy-King College is a state-supported, two-year, coed, community college affiliated with the City Colleges of Chicago. Founded as Woodrow Wilson Junior College in 1935, the College was initially operated by the Chicago Board of Education, until the Illinois State System of Community College Districts took control of it on July 1, 1966. In honor of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., the name was formally changed to Kennedy-King College in July 1969. The College is committed to translating the philosophies of Kennedy and King into an educational mission that includes innovative instructional strategies that are tailored to the individual needs of each student. The 18-acre campus houses a multilevel educational complex that received the American Institute of Architect award for its main building.
