Dear Friends,

As we all move into a rapidly evolving future, it's very important that Central New Mexico Community College ventures forward with a strong sense of purpose, a focused plan and guiding principles that will help us both reach our goals and overcome the challenges that will surely come in the next five years. To help us stay on a steady course for success from 2016-2021, we have designed an updated Strategic Direction that will lead our way.

Our Vision – "Changing Lives, Building Community" – remains the same as it has been since 2008. It's our Vision, and our motivation. Our new Mission is to "Be a Leader in Education and Training." As our state's largest community college, we need to continue striving to be at the forefront of cutting edge education and training. Being a true leader is not only important for our students, but it's also critically important for New Mexico's economy. Being a key contributor to our state's economic development equation, we plan to provide the kind of cutting edge education and training that will deliver highly skilled graduates and a 21st century workforce that will spur economic development.

As we passionately pursue our Mission, we will remain true to our Core Values – Be Caring, Be Ethical, Be Inspiring, Be Courageous, Be Connected and Be Exceptional. These Values will be our touchstones as we strive, through the power of education, to brighten our community's future. Our over-arching goals remain the same – Student Success, Community Success, and Organizational Excellence and Innovation. But our strategies to achieve these goals have been updated with clear objectives to reach by 2020.

Sincerely,

Dr. Katharine Winograd, CNM President
