Economic Vitality

Facilitate student learning by providing programs, services, and conditions that improve the economic well-being of the students, college, and community.

Environmental Integrity

Facilitate student learning by providing the conditions that continually improve the college’s physical, virtual, and social environment.

* Racial disparities are explicitly, although not exclusively, the focus of the objective due to the substantial disparities in educational outcomes by students’ race/ethnicity. By leading with race-where the largest disparities exist, the college will address the pervasive structural and systemic inequities that impact educational outcomes for all students, especially systemically non-dominant students.


Social Justice

Institutional commitment to produce equitable outcomes and challenge systems of power, privilege, and inequity.


Collaboration with individuals, organizations, and businesses to increase student success and improve the community.


Development and implementation of creative and agile strategies to enhance student learning and respond to market needs.


Effective and efficient stewardship of all college resources.

Continuous Improvement

Evaluation and enhancement of all college operations based on data-informed planning and resource allocation.

Shared Governance

Clear communication, inclusive consultation, and respectful consideration of multiple perspectives guide decision-making throughout the college.
