Our mission, vision and values define our reason for being, and provide the framework for planning and improvement efforts at LCC.

Mission

The mission of Lower Columbia College is to ensure each learner's personal and professional success, and influence lives in ways that are local, global, traditional, and innovative.

Vision

Our vision is to be a powerful force for improving the quality of life in our community.

Values

Our campus community expects an environment of integrity, respect, collaboration, cooperation, inclusion, and innovation that fosters personal growth, academic excellence, and accountability.

Core Themes

In 2013, the existing College Outcomes were repackaged into four Core Themes:

  • Workforce & Economic Development
  • Transfer & Academic Preparation
  • Student Access, Support & Completion
  • Institutional Excellence

Key Performance Indicators (KPI's)

We measure progress in each of our Core Themes through our Key Performance Indicators, which are presented annually to the Board of Trustees through a series of Monitoring Reports.

Annual Priorities

Every year we publish a list of Annual Priorities for the coming year, which is based on review and assessment of progress on the Key Performance Indicators.

Strategic Initiatives

Periodically—every three to five years—we update our list of Strategic Initiatives. Strategic Initiatives work in conjunction with our other planning and assessment processes to support continuous improvement.
