Isothermal Community College is a comprehensive, two-year, public institution serving Rutherford and Polk counties in the western foothills of North Carolina.
Isothermal’s mission is to “Improve Life Through Learning.” It is dedicated to the concept of the Learning College and embraces a commitment to excellence.

In the shadows of the Blue Ridge, the college gets its name from the steady and mild climate the area enjoys as the mountains slope toward the Piedmont. From the breathtaking retirement and resort areas of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock to the rolling farmland of Cliffside and the horse country of Tryon to the towns of Rutherfordton, Spindale and Forest City that grew up around the textile industry, the area enjoys a rich cultural and geographical diversity.
The college’s main campus in Spindale is within an hour’s drive of Asheville, Charlotte and the Greenville/Spartanburg, SC, area.
• Earned Doctorate degree from an accredited institution preferred, graduate degree required.
