CR Philosophy

The primary objective of the College is the success of each student. We consider education to be a process of intellectual and physical exploration that rests upon the mutual responsibility of the College and the student.

We recognize the dignity and intrinsic worth of the individual and acknowledge that individual needs, interests, and capacities vary.

In fulfilling these objectives and principles, we affirm our intention:

    1. To provide the highest possible level of education and counseling to help students realize their personal goals;
    2. To provide opportunities for development of moral values and ethical behavior;
    3. To enhance self-esteem and a sense of individual responsibility; and
    4. To instill an appreciation of the values and contributions of other cultures and increase global understanding among all students.

We will continuously seek and support a dedicated, highly qualified staff that is diverse in terms of cultural background, ethnicity, and intellectual perspective and that is committed to fostering a climate of academic freedom and collegiality. We will encourage and reward professional development for all staff and will all share in the responsibility for student outcomes.

College of the Redwoods affirms its responsibility to address the diverse civic needs of the many communities we serve and to provide leadership in the civic, cultural, and economic development of the North Coast region.
