Mission

Okanagan College transforms lives and communities. We educate, train and support our students to excel in the workplace, to succeed in further education and to become lifelong learners.

Vision

We are the college of first choice; a college which students are proud to attend, where employees are proud to work, and whose graduates are highly valued in the workplace and at other post-secondary institutions.

Our vibrant campus life supports an excellent education for our local, national and international students. We promote the free exchange of ideas and the development and application of critical thinking skills. Our goal is to develop global citizenship in our community of informed learners.

As leaders in the economic, cultural and intellectual growth of our communities we work collaboratively with all our partners to anticipate and meet education and labour market needs.
