Johnson County Community College (JCCC) is a 245 acres (99 ha) community college located in Overland Park, Kansas at College Boulevard and Quivira Road. With more than 19,400 credit and continuing education students, JCCC is the largest undergraduate institution of higher education in the state of Kansas. In 1963, Johnson County Commissioners, recognizing the emerging community college movement and seeking to accommodate the rapidly growing population of Johnson County, Kansas, formed a committee to examine the feasibility of forming such an institution in Johnson County. The college was formally established following a successful county-wide election held in March 1967. The existing campus was made possible in 1969 after Johnson County voters approved $12.9 million in bonds to purchase 200 acres of land in Overland Park. Construction began in 1970, and classes and operations were moved to the new campus in the fall of 1972.
