RPCC Core Values

RPCC is a community asset that serves students and the community by creating opportunities for accessible and relevant lifelong learning. While meeting the ever-changing training and capability needs of business and industry, RPCC prepares students to fully engage in and contribute to their personal development, and educational and economic successes.

RPCC Values define the principles and standards that are most important to RPCC employees.


The value of collaboration occurs when we bring together our students, faculty and staff, community leaders and business and industry partners, and will leverage those relationships to build and improve our educational offerings to ensure that our for-credit and workforce offerings meet the needs of our diverse communities, students, and industries.


The value of accountability occurs when we hold ourselves accountable to our students, our business and industry partners, our community leaders, and most importantly to ourselves to continually improve and innovate at every level to ensure that the courses offered are current and pertinent to the student’s and/or client’s goals.


The value of respect and inclusion occurs when we believe that each individual adds value to our college, and we are better positioned to serve our students and communities because of our team’s diverse experiences, educational backgrounds, skills, ideas, races, ethnicities, and perspectives.  We will be respectful of all and actively promote our culture that is inclusive to the full spectrum of humanity.


The value of excellence occurs when we focus on adding value to achieve intentional results through seeking continual improvement in processes, development of our faculty, staff and leaders and operating in a manner that is transparent and rewards integrity and innovation.


The value of sustainability occurs when we are committed stewards of the human, fiscal, intellectual, and physical resources entrusted to us as we pursue innovations which foster sustainability of our resources allowing for growth and diversification of the college and its subsidiaries.
