Revised by the Board of Trustees, January 2012
We honor and embrace the Core Values of Brunswick Community College. We recognize that during the 2013-2014 academic year the campus community joined to select, define and identify these beliefs as timeless guiding principles of our organization and the glue that holds our institution together as it grows. These values, therefore, represent what we believe is the enduring character of Brunswick Community College.
Excellence: Fostering a culture of continual advancement through superior academics and quality service.
Integrity: Vigilantly upholding the highest standards of fair, ethical, and honest behavior.
Respect: Accepting and appreciating the worth and contributions of ourselves, others, and the College.
Opportunity: Helping our students, employees and community reach their potential by supporting success through education.
Community: Cultivating and nurturing a welcoming environment of trust and belonging through collaboration and partnerships.
In an effort to assure that the long-term planning of the College involved a broad-based constituency of internal and external stakeholders, BCC organized a series of meetings to obtain input for Vision 2020, including community leaders and business leaders, economic development representatives, members of the Board of Trustees, and campus leaders. At each meeting, presentations outlined county demographics, economic forecasts and job trends. These briefings were followed by table discussions related to economic and job trends in stakeholder areas of expertise and consideration of programs and services for BCC to consider. Information from the meetings listed below provides the backbone for developing the Vision 2020 planning assumptions to guide the College in future decision making and planning.
EMSI Impact Study
Brunswick Community College creates a significant positive impact on the local business community and generates a return on investment to its major stakeholder groups—students, society, and taxpayers. In fiscal year 2012-13, BCC’s total impact on the BCC Service Area economy was $94.1 million in added income.
Using a two-pronged approach that involves a regional economic impact analysis and an investment analysis, EMSI calculated the benefits to each of these groups. Results of the analysis reflect Fiscal Year (FY) 2012-13 and can be reviewed in the links below.
