We pride ourselves on being an integral part of the community we serve.

We strive to be responsive to community needs in our academic programming and in the services we provide.  Many members of the faculty and staff serve on the boards of various local organizations, and we invite citizens to serve on college advisory boards.

Our students learn civic pride and responsibility through a variety of service learning activities, such as building houses through Habitat for Humanity, serving as tutors and reading partners for local elementary school children, collecting food and nonperishables for helping agencies, and designing web pages for local non-profit agencies.
