Mission & Values


Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Division and Developmental Studies Mission and Values Statements

Our mission is to provide students with academic instruction designed to meet individual educational goals and foster lifelong learning in their chosen field of study.

We provide rigorous curriculum through interdisciplinary instruction that honors and recognizes the academic and workforce needs of our diverse community of lifelong learners.  We are student-centered and we encourage students to become self-motivated learners.

Our developmental courses ascribe to the National Association for Developmental Education's philosophy, which is about
"Helping under-prepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel." (NADE 2001-2006)
