An organization’s mission statement is a declaration of why it exists. A community
college’s fundamental reason for existence is postsecondary education. In different
times and spaces, a revised statement of that mission should resonate to instill a
sense of purpose for the members of the organization. The vision statement of an organization
expresses what the organization aspires to become. And values are the principles on
which members of an organization base their behavior, decisions, and actions.
