At Hocking College, we focus on providing our students with an education that they will be able to use in their real-world careers.
Hocking College Board of Trustees, Administration, Faculty and Staff share a vision that honors the Hocking College legacy of innovation and creativity; delivering relevant programs in high demand career pathways including transfer programs. Hocking College will be a partner and a leader in regional economic development to address social and economic disparity and provide upward mobility to those we serve. We aspire to provide an affordable comprehensive college experience with opportunity for development of the mind, body and spirit in an inclusive atmosphere for those who seek a relevant world-class hands-on experiential learning experience in a caring, supportive and nurturing environment.
We value experience-based learning, student success, and development both inside and outside of the classroom. We are committed to student completion, job readiness, job placement and maximizing transfer credit.
As we teach, so shall we learn. We value a quality learning and working environment through the development of data-informed processes and a climate that fosters creativity. We seek to discover best practices to serve our students in excellence.
As a dynamic and evolving institution, we value building and reinforcing relevant, experience-based programming, allowing our student body to engage in an exploration of their future careers or transfer to other institutions. Our flexibility allows for the responsiveness necessary to develop and maintain programs that meet specific workforce demands and transfer needs.
We value an environment that encourages input from our students, our community, and each other. We foster a culture of community within the bounds of Hocking College and society. We value local, state, national and international, new, continued and renewed partnerships. Service learning is an integral part of student success and encourages us to keep our thoughts trained to the greater good.
As an open-access institution, we value our entire student population: the career-focused student, the transfer student, and the lifelong learner. We are committed to providing opportunities for all those seeking an education, providing supportive services to enhance the learning experience.
We commit Hocking College as a place of belonging where all people feel welcome and included. We celebrate and learn from the cultures and ethnicities of the world, with a commitment to a respectfulness and inclusion for all individuals, including our veterans and active duty military and their families, those of all races, religions, sexes, ages, orientations, ideologies and physical challenges.
