Given the events and tensions that have shaken all corners of our country over the past few days, Jefferson College remains firmly committed to the inalienable human values of diversity, equality, and respect for all as we strive together to assure that these principles never waiver or change.
In connection with the partnership between Jefferson College and the St. Louis Astronomical Society (SLAS) to develop an astronomical observatory in phases on the Hillsboro campus, the College will host several observation nights for those who want to learn more about astronomy.
The College is already using the undeveloped site as a teaching and learning opportunity for students enrolled in science and astronomy classes in connection with lab assignments and in-class discussions.

For those who are interested in a career within the business side of the healthcare field, the Jefferson College Health Information Technology (HIT) program is moving to a fully online format beginning in the Spring of 2020.
HIT is an Associate of Applied Science degree program that is flexible for those who work and can be taken either full-time or part-time. It prepares students to further their career as a manager of health information systems in a broad range of healthcare settings, and gives a career option to those who are not comfortable with blood, needles, or bodily fluids.
Courses are taught by experienced professionals in the industry.
