Vision Statement

Endorsed by DPAC on April 22, 2015

The technological transformation underway compels SMC to cultivate a college culture that empowers its faculty and staff and prepares its students to master the skills, knowledge and abilities required to excel in the digital world. The effective use of technology is a priority in every function that the college performs and is an essential aspect of all current and future improvements to the college.

Santa Monica College cultivates a college culture that is responsive to this rapid transformation. SMC should be a leader and innovator for technology at the community college level. The college is committed to being a forward thinking leader, to inform planning how technology will improve the institution, and to make institutional decisions based on these technology needs
