“On numerous occasions I have shared with our staff, faculty and you how much I love Neumont because of my passion for computer science education,” said Neumont President Aaron Reed, Ed.D., this afternoon in an email to students where he echoed Monday’s announcement that Neumont had officially launched it’s new mission statement,
"Improving lives through education."
“A mission statement should inspire and drive action,” Reed said. “We are an institution full of people who are passionate about computer science education; it’s time our mission statement better represented who we are and what drive us.”
Over the next five days we’ll be taking a look at the supporting values that govern this new mission statement:
- Tirelessly passionate about education
- Striving for excellence
We’re kicking off the week with our value “Tirelessly passionate about education,” because at Neumont, it’s a passion for education that drives our faculty, staff and administration. What many in academia (or any sector) may deem as the drudgery of work, the inspiring mission of “changing lives through education” helps Neumont faculty to more fully recognize and embrace the potential impact they have on the lives of others.
We recruit faculty and staff who embrace and live the culture of life-long learning. Our most successful faculty members are passionate computer scientists and developers with comprehensive industry experience and a desire to share what they’ve learned with students.
We recruit students who have already made the bold decision to pursue an education in computer science. Many of our students will be the first in their family to attend college. With the knowledge and skills they’ve attained during their time at Neumont, they change not only their lives, but set a new course for their family and generations to come.
