Statement of Values

Our highest value is placed on our students and their educational goals; interwoven in that value is our recognition that the faculty and staff of El Camino College are the College’s stability, its source of strength and its driving force. With this in mind, our five core values are:

People – We strive to inspire our diverse students, employees, and community with purpose, passion, and pride.
Respect – We work in a spirit of civility, cooperation and collaboration.
Integrity – We act ethically and honestly toward our students, colleagues and community.
Diversity – We embrace our similarities and differences to promote an inclusive campus community with equitable outcomes for all.
Excellence – We deliver quality, innovation, and excellence in all we do.

To advance the mission, vision and values, El Camino College develops strategic initiatives and action items for institutional improvement as part of long-range master planning. A set of aspirational goals on selected student achievement measures informs institutional progress.

The College uses evidence and the collegial consultation process to evaluate the mission, vision, and values, and revises them on a regular basis.
