Our Mission & Vision

Project mission and vision

Our vision is a student population that reflects and respects the diversity of the community in our region.

Our mission is to change who goes to college by working together as education providers and communities. This new partnership will empower future students to make informed choices and fulfil their potential.

Project values

We believe education can transform people’s lives. We see a diverse student population as a resource to the MEND group of colleges that can drive organisational and academic excellence.

College Connect focuses on:

  • Community development
  • Empowerment
  • Sustainable development

Our community partners will be right at the heart of this project. The educational needs of people in our region will guide our actions. These are people who typically do not progress to higher education.

In this project we aim to make a meaningful contribution to social justice and cohesion in our region.
