Student-centered: The best interest of our students are a central consideration in all we do.

Advancement: We have the courage and curiosity to challenge the status quo, innovate and take calculated risks. We find new ways to move forward which translates into growth for our students, our campus, and our community.
Our ongoing efforts to enrich the student experience are influenced by the evolving workforce needs of industry. We will continue to have Program Advisory Committee members guide our faculty in strengthening curriculum and developing programs to meet the needs of industry today. We will also continue to engage in extensive dialogue with external partners, community leaders, school districts, and other higher education institutions to meet future goals of Johnson College.
Through a new master plan, we will build a stronger intersection between higher education and industry. By constructing a new, industry-focused building, we are creating a new gateway to campus for students to begin their journey, and updating existing facilities to enhance student engagement and learning.
