Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

TCC’s Center for Community & Learning leads efforts to institutionalize programming that supports student success as a transformative force that promotes professional growth and academic excellence — integrating the needs of student academic and life coaching, peer leadership, intercultural engagement, and student resource navigation.

Our Vision

TCC will excel as an educational community that offers a nurturing, success-focused, and challenging intellectual climate. Together, we will value differences and leverage them as sources of strength and innovation as we prepare students to step into their roles as global leaders.

We expect every member of our academic family to embrace the underlying values of this vision and to demonstrate a strong commitment to attracting, retaining, and supporting students, faculty, and staff who reflect our larger society.
