Within Treasure Valley Community College, civility is defined as a demonstration of mutual respect - for people, for their roles, for their knowledge and expertise. Civility requires cooperation, tolerance, acceptance, inclusiveness, kindness, courtesy and patience. It will be expressed not only in the words we choose, but in our tone, demeanor and actions. All members of the TVCC community are responsible for and expected to exemplify and promote civility.
TVCC is committed to creating and maintaining a positive learning and working environment. While it is understood that disagreement will, and should, occur in a collegiate setting, open communication, intellectual integrity, mutual respect for differing viewpoints, freedom from unnecessary disruption, and a climate of civility are important values that we embrace.
The Core Theme of Fostering Educational Success provides a systematic method to measure student learning and achievement.
At TVCC, the “Institutional Indicators” are those metrics that are of primary concern and serve as proxies for the quality and sustainability of the institution: student enrollment; student retention and transfer rates; student completion rates; and student loan default rates.
At TVCC, Ensuring Access means equitable access to quality education.
Reduce the achievement gap for first-generation college students, underrepresented students of color, and economically disadvantaged students.
At TVCC, Building Our Community means positively affecting our community on two levels. The first level is our campus community, including traditional and non-traditional students, as well as faculty and staff.
The second level is positively affecting the local communities that we serve. This core theme represents many of the other activities on campus, that complete the story of TVCC, as they are essential to understanding the holistic function and role of TVCC in our larger community.
Shared Values Statement
Adopted 09/18/18 by Board of Education
At TVCC, we strive to support diversity and to be an equitable, inclusive community that provides a safe environment and embraces the dignity and worth of every person. We acknowledge that a multicultural presence of faculty, staff, and students enriches dialogue, collaboration, education, and outreach. As an institution, it is vital that our faculty, staff, and students have the experience, perspective, and cultural competency to operate in an ever-changing environment. Our business practices and community relations maintain a focus on connecting with communities and cultures.
TVCC supports the institution-wide commitment to create and maintain a learning, teaching, and working environment free of discrimination and barriers. This requires the effort of every member of the community college.
Equity gives individuals unique support to make it possible for them to have fair and just access to offerings or services. Equity is not treating everyone the same; equity is creating opportunities in the learning and working community for people to reach their full potential through access to all rights, privileges, and resources.
Diversity embraces all human differences, strengthening connections through the richness of commonalities we share as a community. It endeavors to eliminate discrimination and exclusion based on gender, race, class, economic status, ethnic background, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and cultural and religious backgrounds.
Inclusion affords all members of the broad campus community the opportunity to participate fully in all activities and educational opportunities. It fosters a spirit of openness to active engagement among all members of our campus community.
