Mission and Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower students in their educational journey by building upon their diverse strengths. We advocate on behalf of learners to overcome institutional barriers while providing academic, career, transfer, personal counseling and instruction. We value the worth and dignity of each individual as they positively contribute to their communities and global society.

Our Values


We encourage students to be brave in expressing needs, values, and aspirations in a safe, inclusive, and culturally competent environment, where all voices are heard equally.


We treat students with dignity and honor by acknowledging everyone’s unique perspectives, backgrounds, and abilities.


We inspire students to dream big and achieve their greatest educational and career goals.


We strive to provide current, consistent, and accurate information to assist students in making informed decisions.


We practice open and direct communication across both instruction and student services to provide the highest quality of services to students.


We appreciate an enjoyable and encouraging work environment that makes all feel welcome and inspired. Our atmosphere promotes honesty, laughter, and open-mindedness.


We foster a mutually respectful work environment which is open, flexible and growth oriented.
