Our Mission, Vision, and Values

An organization’s mission statement is a declaration of why it exists. A community college’s fundamental reason for existence is postsecondary education. In different times and spaces, a revised statement of that mission should resonate to instill a sense of purpose for the members of the organization. The vision statement of an organization expresses what the organization aspires to become. And values are the principles on which members of an organization base their behavior, decisions, and actions.
