To provide open-access to affordable, quality education that meets the needs of students, regional employers, and community.
Learning for Work and Life
CEI is a place of learning where students prepare for transfer, careers, and effective citizenship. The college embraces active learning and provides instruction that is not only academically rigorous, but also tailored to the needs of the student and the community. Learning for work and life takes place in all areas of campus through transfer degrees, career-technical education, college and career readiness, and workforce training.
CEI faculty and staff throughout the college are committed to students and their success. Well-functioning student support areas are critical to our students' success because they help model outstanding professional behaviors, and they provide comprehensive student support from first contact through degree and/or employment.
CEI's focus on community is evident in a safe and inviting campus, which fosters communication, professional growth and adult enrichment through broad, collaborative relationships within academic and employer communities throughout the region.
