While a plethora of research exists concerning Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI), virtually all of the research is focused on grades K-12. Few research studies on MI have been conducted with college students. The present study explores and profiles the Multiple Intelligences of community college students (N = 90) enrolled in online courses during the summer of 2006. The study is the first in a series of ongoing research that will explore MI theory among community college students. An overall profile of the students’ Multiple Intelligences are presented as well as descriptive comparisons between male and female profiles, selected majors and course type comparisons. Implications and recommendations for further MI research are also discussed.
