 Values (C-A-R-R-O-L-L)

Carroll is the community’s college, and building community is highlighted in its mission statement. Through associate degree programs, career education, support for entrepreneurs, corporate training, kids’ summer camps, adult personal enrichment, cultural events, athletics, and its many partnerships with community and governmental organizations, the College is dedicated to enriching the community it serves.

The College is a good steward of the public’s trust and is transparent and accountable in all it does. It assesses its mission accomplishment through benchmarked institutional effectiveness measures, national and state peer comparisons, and regular program reviews. Student learning outcomes are continuously assessed and curricula revised to ensure the highest quality educational experience for students. Assessment data are regularly shared with the College’s governing board, the County government, and the public.

Carroll Community College is an organization that values, recognizes, and rewards just, humane, honest, and respectful human interaction; ethical and truthful representation of the college to students and the community; positive and collaborative problem-solving; and solutions-oriented action. Carroll fosters engagement and a sense of belonging by providing a safe learning and working environment that models respect, acceptance, inclusion, and empathy towards diverse ways of thinking and being.

Inscribed within the Seal of Carroll Community College are three ideals of an educated person: “Knowledge, Truth and Wisdom.” To inspire these ideals, the College encourages students and employees to reflect on their learning and personal experiences to build knowledge, distinguish truth and develop wisdom.

Carroll strives to provide an affordable education accessible to all who can benefit from its offerings, with transitional education to prepare students for college work and flexible learning options including online and evening classes to fit our students’ busy lives.

The words “Enter to Learn” are chiseled above the College’s main entrance, heralding its primary and defining mission. The phrase is also emblematic of Carroll’s institutional culture of organizational learning and continuous improvement.

Carroll challenges its students and employees to take responsibility for and control of their lives and become engaged citizens and leaders in their chosen careers. Similarly, the College embraces the challenge of being a thought leader in the community it serves.
