The mission of the College is:

The Board of Education will evaluate and revise the mission of the college on a regular basis consistent with review cycles established by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

Encompassed within the College’s mission are these Board-adopted Core Themes:

Core Theme: Student Success

Objective: OCCC will improve post-secondary educational attainment across Lincoln County and close achievement gaps for underserved populations in our community.

At Oregon Coast Community College, we equip students for success in college and in life by providing exemplary teaching, student development programs and support services. Students receive customized and relevant advising and enriched supports to maximize completion and success.  In response to the diverse needs and histories of our community we are institutionalizing a philosophy of student success and strengthening the College’s policies, processes, and business practices to facilitate access and completion.

Core Theme: Educational Pathways

Objective: OCCC will offer rigorous and engaging academic programs and educational options comprised of clear pathways to transfer, employment and self-development that enrich individual lives and promote the economic and civic vitality of Lincoln County and beyond.

At Oregon Coast Community College, we assess the needs of individuals and employers, and respond by designing pathways and partnerships that address community and regional priorities.  We create bridges into our pathways from high school, adult education, non-credit, and other feeders.  Educational pathways are accessible through place and modality, and facilitate transitions to transfer or employment.   We strengthen the economy and workforce through our business development, career technical and transfer programs.  By narrowing achievement gaps in post-secondary education and raising post-secondary educational attainment, we advance the economic and civic vitality of Lincoln County and beyond.
