Preparing a renewed strategic plan was an opportunity for staff, students, and the many communities we serve to provide our thoughts, ideas, and recommendations on how can we build on our successes and pursue what can be further imagined...
Selkirk College inspires lifelong learning, transforms lives through education and training, and serves our communities.
We are a learner-centred college that provides educational experiences and pathways to prepare students for work, further education, service, and lifelong learning.
Our vision is to make learning authentic, inspiring, rewarding and relevant to students, the region, and the world. We are integral to the economic development, social equity, culture, and sustainability of the communities we serve.
We value the following in our daily work for learners, with each other and in the community:
Respect - a commitment to honesty, integrity, and fairness in all of our communication, interactions and relationships with learners, co-workers, and in our communities.
Quality - a commitment to high quality in our programs and services, to adopting best practice approaches, and to continuous improvement.
Inclusivity - a belief in providing a welcoming, supportive institution that celebrates diverse perspectives, cultures, traditions, and ways of learning and knowing.
Curiosity - a passion to uphold the spirit of learning and inquiry; address challenges with creative solutions; inspire the imagination, spirit and mind to be learners for life.
Service - an approach to our work that is rooted in a dedication to serve our students, co- workers, and communities.
Collaboration - an approach to working within the college, and with our stakeholders and partners that is based on equity, mutual benefit, and that recognizes the rewards of healthy relationships.
Accountability - a commitment to assuming and fulfilling our respective individual, collective, and institutional responsibilities for the success of our learners and the college.
