Mission

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.


Vision

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.


Equity Statement

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.

1Examples of historically underrepresented students include but are not limited to: first-generation, low-income, students of color, adult students; marginalized orientations, gender identities, and intersex students; students with second-language backgrounds; undocumented students; transnationals; veterans; students with disabilities; students with dependents; foster care youth; and formerly and currently incarcerated students.
