Organizational Practices

In the context of our organizational values, we advance an exceptional learning environment and experience for students:

  • Identifying the learning needs of the communities, students, and employees we serve and using that information to guide our teaching, programs, and services
  • Welcoming new opportunities for learning and professional growth
  • Identifying and using benchmarks and best practices to improve our work as we focus on institutional purpose, vision, mission, and values
  • Holding and communicating high standards for ourselves, our students, and our colleagues
  • Practicing inclusive, learning-centered planning and decision-making, informed by data and our best judgment
  • Recognizing problems, collaborating to seek root causes, and implementing effective solutions
  • Empowering and freeing those closest to the work to make responsible decisions
  • Assuming personal and collective stewardship of college systems, processes, programs, facilities, and resources to keep them vital
  • Celebrating individual and group initiatives and achievement
  • Promoting, both individually and collectively, a positive image of the college, its collegiate high school, and the early college high schools to all segments of the communities we serve
