The mission of El Paso Community College is to provide accessible, quality and affordable education that prepares
students for academic, professional and personal growth and advances our regional workforce.
El Paso Community College will be the progressive educational leader providing quality education that facilitates
success for students, the community and region through innovative learning opportunities.
Recognizing that there are obstacles for students in attaining academic goals, equity strives to achieve fairness
through inclusion and active removal of barriers to eliminate disparities by supporting student progress, degree
completion, transfer and/or gainful employment. EPCC is committed to addressing equity as a basis for creating
opportunities and providing resources to historically underrepresented1 students and to the success of
all members of its college community.
Adopted by the Board of Trustees June 2018.
