Our Vision

Inspiring life-changing learning.

Camosun's vision defines an optimal future for the college. It gives us guidance and inspiration about what we will focus on achieving. It builds on our hope of what we can become. Ours is simple. It encompasses the community college's role in transformative education and highlights the mutual partnership of the learner and facilitator while speaking to a process in which learning in all its forms challenges the status quo, both institutionally and personally.

Our Mission

We build a better future for our community with relevant, innovative and applied education.

Our mission statement defines our purpose and outlines what we do, who we do it for, and how we accomplish this.

Our Values

  • Lifelong learning
  • Positive and supportive student experiences
  • An inclusive community
  • An environment of respect and safety for all
  • Our relationships with one another
  • Indigenization

College values reflect a common core of understanding and a guideline for how we relate to students. They are a positive reflection of what is at our core and are seen in our practice or in how we do things.
