North Lake College Blazer Values 2.0

We seek to exceed expectations and achieve exceptional results; foster student success in and outside the classroom; advocate professional development for all our employees; and provide a high quality teaching and learning environment.


We are committed to the principles of honesty, responsibility, and accountability. We inspire trust by saying what we mean, matching our behaviors to our words, and communicating with openness and transparency.


We champion new ideas and encourage creativity and informed risk-taking. Whether it’s a new program or a new process, we strive to continuously deliver outstanding opportunities, with the understanding that forward-thinking agility and nimbleness will shape our best future.


Our community is built on respect. We appreciate our diversity and believe in the value of varying opinions, perspectives, and styles because this benefits all of us even as it challenges us to grow and think differently. We are kind to those in our community and welcoming to newcomers.


We have the tenacity and determination to work as hard and long as it takes to achieve success in spite of obstacles that may stand in our way. We model this grit for our students and for each other.
