The mission of the College to "provide an education that empowers students to use their hearts, minds and hands to meet personal, professional and global challenges and to lead purposeful lives of responsibility, leadership, service and civic engagement is achieved primarily through education and building a campus culture in alignment with that mission.

- ensures that processes, policies and strategic priorities reinforce and strengthen the College's overall commitment to the well-being of all members of the Hood Community
- identifies and proposes solutions to obstacles (systematic or singular) that prevent individual growth and well-being
