Mission, Vision and Values

 These statements represent thoughtful collaboration from a variety of stakeholders. Starting in February of 2014, all-campus and all-centers meetings provided an opportunity for CCC employees to consider what success looks like for our students. Using the World Cafe model, employees worked in small groups to discuss “student success.” This same model was used in a conversation in April with our high school articulation partners. Advisory Committees including business and industry representatives as well as current and former CCC students also took part in a conversation about student success.

 

 A steering committee, representative of CCC staff, faculty, and administration, used the stakeholder input as they worked to develop draft statements for Central Community College’s mission, vision, values, and student success definition.
