college identifies with and responds to the needs of this community and is instrumental in shaping its future. As such, the ongoing mission of Rockland Community College is to:
Seek out and encourage all those who wish to learn without regard to ethnic or racial background, color, religion, gender, physical ability, nationality, age, marital status, sexual orientation, economic status, developmental stage, or prior educational achievement.
Develop the knowledge, skills and understanding for life, work and responsible citizenship within a diverse and changing world and culture.
Foster opportunities for lifelong learning which integrate a person's life, career and educational goals.
Provide leadership in Rockland County for academic, economic and creative development and serve as a resource for community services and cultural affairs. Promote the values and purposes of higher education by reaching out actively to diverse populations who might otherwise not have considered attending college, discerning their needs and devising programming to meet those needs.
