Mission, Vision & Values


York County Community College provides academic, career, and transfer programs while serving to advance cultural, economic, and workforce development in York County and the State of Maine.


At York County Community College, we celebrate each student’s individual success. While we recognize academic progress as an important part of their journey, we appreciate the value of life experience, personal development, self-awareness and the pursuit of learning.

Connections and individual attention are at the heart of our relationships with students. Whether they spend a semester or several years at our college, students will leave knowing they have been part of a community that has invested in them as a whole person. We are committed to empowering each student to achieve their full academic potential and accomplish their personal goals.


We are responsible to our community and we consider the impact of our actions and decisions through transparency and inclusion.
We promote curiosity and discovery by supporting continuous growth with particular emphasis on new educational strategies, emerging technologies, and organizational development.
We value collaboration through mutual contribution and collective efforts by combining the talents, experience, and skills of the College community.
We appreciate and value the inherent potential of our community and YCCC makes a conscious commitment to assist people in achieving their academic, personal and professional goals through intellectual engagement.
