Our Mission

To provide affordable and accessible post-secondary education to the residents of northern Pennsylvania.

Our Identity

We serve communities in northern Pennsylvania by engaging recent graduates, high school or college non-completers, returning adults, and first-generation students.

We bring classrooms to communities by providing a flexible, career-focused curriculum and quality instruction using interactive media. We offer associate degrees, certificate programs, short-term classes, workshops and seminars, and customized training.

We are low-cost, high quality, easily accessible, student-centered, and highly responsive to existing or emerging community needs.

We enhance regional economic growth and civic development by meeting employers' needs for skilled workers. By doing so, we create greater opportunities and the career and educational pathways that will help retain and attract residents to our region.

Our future is bright because we fill a unique niche in the way in which we deliver post-secondary education and workforce development to our region. Our dedicated, highly qualified, and passionate trustees and staff are true partners in ensuring our students' success in school and in life.
