Jennifer Kloberdanz
Director of Admissions & Recruitment


Jennifer oversees the recruitment and admissions functions for the Admissions Office at Joliet Junior College.  Jennifer has over 30+ years of experience in financial aid and admissions.

"During my career, I have worked in higher education in various enrollment management positions. As a community college graduate and the director of admissions at Joliet Junior College (JJC), I am very passionate about the mission of community colleges and am extremely excited to showcase JJC’s state of the art facilities and many academic program offerings. The first impression to the student is key since it reinforces to students that JJC is an excellent first choice in pursuing their career path. Lastly, I enjoy working with the Admissions team on a daily basis to serve the students and communities in the JJC district."
