Through education, we seek to help bring about more satisfying and productive personal lives, stronger community leadership, and a strengthened economic base. High quality college programs are at the heart of our mission. Additionally, we are committed to addressing community needs through English as a second language instruction, basic skills instruction, career training, cultural programming, and collaboration with other organizations and agencies. Passaic County's rich diversity defines us and shapes our efforts. We know that if our programs are to be accessible and our students are to succeed, we must go beyond the basic requirements of open admission, relevant programs, convenient locations, and affordability. We must strive to address our wide variety of student learning needs through excellence in teaching and the innovative use of technology. We must take every opportunity to offer students both formal and informal experiences that foster learning, personal growth, and civic responsibility. We must respect individual differences. We must maintain a supportive, open environment where learning and creativity can flourish. Passaic County Community College values honesty, integrity, and accountability.
