Civility Statement

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.

Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan articulates priorities, and at the same time, guides decisions on resource allocation.

During 2016-17, TVCC began the development of the current iteration of its Strategic Plan. During this process, input was requested campus-wide; faculty, professional and classified staff, administrators, students and board members all participated in its development. Under its new strategic planning framework, Strategic Directions are the top-level element of the strategic plan; they communicate the overall direction for the institution, and are major organizational focus areas for sustained attention and budget priority. In addition, Strategic Directions help guide other elements in institutional planning to focus institutional action, serving as medium-term objectives to expand the institutional capacity to fulfill its mission. Critical and Supporting Strategies are second-level elements of the strategic plan; these strategies communicate direction for near-term implementation efforts and annual resource allocation, and are directly linked to TVCC’s mission fulfillment indicators.

Equity Statement

At TVCC, we strive to be an equitable, inclusive community that provides a safe environment and embraces the dignity and worth of every person.

Diversity Statement

TVCC acknowledges that having a multicultural presence of faculty, staff, and students enrich dialogue, collaboration, education, and outreach.  As an institution, it is imperative that our faculty, staff, and students have the experiences, perspective, and cultural competency to operate in an ever changing environment, and that, our business practices and community relations maintain a focus on connecting with communities and cultures outside our own.

TVCC supports the institution-wide commitment to create and maintain a learning, teaching, and working environment free of discrimination and barriers. This requires the work of every member of the college community, including students, staff, instructors, administrators, alumni, and guests.
