                    PURPOSE STATEMENT

    The Northeast Mississippi Community College is a public, comprehensive community
college that exists to meet the educational and vocational needs of individual students and
the community within the district it serves – Alcorn, Prentiss, Tippah, Tishomingo, and
Union Counties – by awarding the Associate in Arts Degree, Associate in Applied Science
Degree, and Certificate. Beyond this original scope, however, Northeast responds to the
needs of all who seek a college education.



                                                                                              2
     To accomplish the intended role and scope of the college, the
     following institutional goals were established:


1.   To provide degree and certificate programs that prepare students for
     continued studies or immediate employment.

2.   To provide a program of student services that will facilitate the educational,
     vocational, personal, and social growth of students.

3.   To provide developmental studies within the curriculum to strengthen the
     basic skills of students.

4.   To offer continuing education and community services by providing classes,
     workshops, seminars, and/or facilities.

5.   To provide employer-driven, industry-specific workforce education and
     training to business, industry, and individuals.

6.   To provide human resources, financial resources, instructional resources, and
     physical facilities necessary to offer quality instruction.

                                                                     (Board Policy – 132)

The individual instructor is the key component in accomplishing the educational goals of
the college. The instructor’s attitude, personality, knowledge, skills, and motivation
contribute to the creation of an effective learning environment. The three primary roles
of the faculty are distributed across teaching, advising, and service/scholarship functions.
The percentage of time spent in each role will vary based on the individual teaching
assignment. The teaching, advising, and service/scholarship roles have core
components that delineate specific responsibilities and attributes necessary for quality
instruction. Some of these components are listed as follows.




                                                                                           11

      appointments.

      placement scores, learning problems, etc.) and use this information to help the
      student plan their curriculum and schedule their courses in order to complete the
      planned course of study.
4.    Periodically review student academic progress and provide academic counseling
      and/or referral services for students who require academic intervention - (Student

      student confidentiality.
