Our Values 

Shared responsibility through shared governance

  • We believe that faculty, staff, and administration at the Maricopa Community Colleges should work collaboratively in a climate of mutual respect. Doing so advances the goals of our educational institution - supporting students in their educational goals to new opportunities and a better life. With true shared governance, the collective wisdom gained from these different perspectives are included and incorporated by a truly collaborative process into a shared vision of the community college mission and its operations that benefits students.  This means a restoration of the Meet and Confer process and other avenues of shared governance that have been severely eroded at Maricopa in the last four years.

Breaking down economic barriers to help students further their educational goals

  • We also believe that restoration of state funding to the community college system is essential to keeping tuition costs down for students. State funding of the Maricopa Community College system in 2009 was $59 million. Current state funding for the Maricopa Community Colleges system is $0. Students and property owners bear the cost of these cuts.

Investing in students' future economic success through the Maricopa Community Colleges

  • The Maricopa Community Colleges system powers economic growth of Maricopa County. Graduates from the Maricopa Community College system are our future mechanics, electricians, nurses, and dental assistants, while students who transfer to four-year institution become our future doctors, accountants, business owners, engineers, teachers, and analysts.

Providing an affordable, high-quality education for students of Maricopa County

  • Community colleges serve the needs of many in our community, whether it is though job training, continuing education, certificates, associate degrees, or transfer credits to a four-year college.
