NECC Voices 2012 – 2015

In Voices: 2012-2015 you will find a Vision Statement that describes the highest aspirations of the college, as well as statements of our Core Values conveying who we are and how we pursue our work. You will also find descriptions that build upon some important other plans and activities we are involved in, such as Achieving the Dream, our recently completed NEASC Self-Study, and the Massachusetts Vision Project for Higher Education, including:
Strategic Directions: Broad statements about some of our most important commitments that each division, department, and area of the college will be asked to use as guides in planning and allocating resources.
Strategic Goals: More specific statements about initiatives and activities that are important to us, and that we will work toward together. These goals will be given high priority for planning, allocating resources, forming teams, and monitoring progress over the next three years.
