The mission of the Rogue Community College is:

Rogue Community College provides quality learning opportunities for students to achieve their goals and supports the vitality of our communities.

Rogue Community College is a premier learning college that transforms, strengthens and inspires.

Core Values
Integrity requires us, as an institution and individuals, to be transparent, ethical and accountable.
Collaboration promotes an agile, responsive culture to creatively address the aspirations and needs of our communities.
Inclusion creates a compassionate and safe environment that views all individuals and ideas fairly.
Stewardship commits us to responsible and thoughtful guardianship of our human, economic, environmental and cultural resources.
Courage frees the institution to find and pursue the best path in support of student learning and Rogue excellence.

Wildly Important Goals: Core Themes

1. Access to Educational Opportunities
Objective 1: Improve access to educational and support systems for current and prospective students.
Make entry to RCC a smoother transition for all students. Make use of college support systems more student-friendly, including course entry requirements and prerequisites.
Objective 2: Increase participation of under-served populations in our programs.
College enrollments do not reflect under-served populations at the same rate as they occur in the community.
Objective 3: Create collaborative learning spaces that connect students to other students, faculty, staff and local employers.
These are spaces where students can learn together, with college faculty and staff, or with local employers.

2. Student Success
Objective 4:
Construct guided educational pathways.
Guided pathways are highly structured, educationally logical program maps.
Objective 5: Increase effective student engagement strategies.
Student engagement is the degree of attention, curiosity, optimism, interest and passion that students demonstrate when they are learning. It influences the level of motivation they have to learn and progress in their education.
Objective 6: Decrease student time to completion while maintaining quality education.
The longer students take to finish a certificate or degree, the more likely they are to drop out of college. This has a negative impact on their earning power in the workforce.

3. Collaborative Partnerships
Objective 7:
Increase alignment between college programs and local employers.
Make sure that programs lead to actual jobs in the Rogue Valley.
Objective 8: Leverage local partnerships to enhance college strategic goals.
Find ways to share resources and reduce costs.
Objective 9: Maximize cross-divisional strategies to solve problems creatively.
Work together for the success of our students.

The Board of Education evaluates and/or revises the mission of the Rogue Community College not less than once every three years.
