  • Integrity:  We are dedicated to being open, honest, and responsible in our actions and words.  These tenets provide the foundation for everything we do, as individuals and as a college community.
  • Quality: We strive to provide an environment of educational excellence and rigor. This environment is shaped by the long-term goals of the students and communities we serve.
  • Commitment: We are steadfast in the pursuit of our goals, both for ourselves and for our students.
  • Student-Focused: We value our students beyond all else. We build trusting relationships grounded in fairness, respect, and accountability.


Institutional Goals

The Wharton County Junior College Strategic Plan is founded upon four overarching institutional goals:

Student Success

WCJC will provide exceptional educational opportunities and support services that foster a culture of holistic student engagement resulting in increased student success.

Community Impact

WCJC will rise to the needs of the diverse communities we serve by addressing local needs, cultivating collaborative partnerships, and responding to our area’s workforce demands.

Resource Optimization and Organizational Stewardship

WCJC will preserve and protect our organizational resources to optimize funding for strategic priorities and maintain fiscal security for the future of the college.

Innovation and Institutional Excellence

Student Success Metrics

A comprehensive set of Student Success Metrics have been identified to help monitor progress toward the achievement of the goals associated with the WCJC Strategic Plan and evaluate student performance and success.  An annual summary of these Student Success Metrics is provided to the campus community to promote awareness of outcomes and facilitate discussions regarding future actions.
