Vision Statement
Roane State Community College’s vision is to be a premier learning institution that transforms lives, strengthens community, and inspires individuals to excellence.

Mission Statement
Roane State Community College is a comprehensive, public, two-year postsecondary institution serving the higher education needs of a diverse eight-county service area, which includes Roane, Anderson, Campbell, Cumberland, Fentress, Loudon, Morgan, and Scott counties and expands to include Knox and Blount counties for the delivery of a broad range of health science programs. Roane State provides multiple staffed teaching locations and a wide range of flexible teaching delivery modes and distance education technologies to accommodate the diverse learning needs of students balancing multiple priorities in the pursuit of their educational goals.

The college awards the Associate of Arts, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Science in Teaching degree for students who wish to transfer to a four-year institution and provides career education for Associate of Applied Science degree or Technical Certificate graduates to enter the workforce. Roane State also upgrades employee skills with a wide range of continuing education and workforce development training offerings, provides a pathway to postsecondary education for high school students through dual studies, and brings cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities to its communities.

Regardless of their program of study, Roane State students are provided a sound foundation in critical thinking and communication skills and exposed to a curriculum and experiences designed to broaden their understanding and respect for wellness, civic engagement and service, diverse ideas and cultures, a sense of the global community, and the technology required to succeed in 21st century society.

Roane State’s mission is to improve the lives of individuals through the transformative power of education and to build thriving communities through partnerships for strengthening economic development. Just as Roane State expects its students to challenge themselves to engage in lifelong learning, the college accepts the challenge to sustain a culture of innovation and to continually explore new ways to provide an educational experience that meets the current and future needs of its service area communities.

Values Statement
The college community affirms as its highest values honesty, integrity, respectful communication, and a commitment to personal and professional accountability and measures its institutional success by the success of its students.
