We are currently revising the college’s priorities. They will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
Maintain competitive salaries and benefits, recruit and hire quality employees, and support professional development as a high priority.
Building a Collegiate Environment

- Strengthen and enhance current performing arts programs.
- Increase competitiveness of academic competition programs.

- Revise curricula to allow students the flexibility of entering, leaving, and re-entering programs at multiple points, thus allowing students to accelerate their completion of programs and to create a “24/7” access to courses, programs, and campus resources.
- Redefine diversity into a broader context and implement recruitment strategies that increase the pool of qualified employees who will expand the diversity of the college.
- Increase recruitment and retention of minority and first generation students.
- Increase international student recruitment; enhance international student academic and social support systems and expand the credit English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program.
