CORE THEMES
Learning for Work and Life Student Centered Community Engagement
EITC is a place of learning where
students prepare for careers and
effective citizenship. We embrace
hands-on learning and provide
instruction that is not only
academically rigorous, but
tailored to the needs of the
community. Learning for work
and life takes place in all areas of
campus through
professional-technical education,
adult basic education, and
workforce education.
EITC’s value of community is
evident in our safe, clean and
inviting campus, which fosters
communication and professional
growth; and our broader,
collaborative relationships within
the local, regional, and academic
communities who are key
stakeholders.
EITC faculty and staff
throughout the college are
committed to students and their
success. Well-functioning student
support areas are critical to our
students’ success, help model
outstanding workplace behaviors,
and provide comprehensive
student support from
pre-enrollment through
employment.
