About Our College

KBOCC was chartered by the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community on July 12, 1975. The Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community founded the College with the understanding that American Indian students, as members of sovereign nations, deserved an educational system responsive to their needs and concerns.[1] On November 1, 2017, KBOCC purchased the former Pelkie Elementary School for $1 for use as an education center for the community.[2] On January 26, 2018, Debra Parrish retired after serving nearly 30 years as president.[3] She was succeeded by Lori Ann Sherman.[4]
