About Us NCCT Institutional Goals

NCCT Institutional Goals

The following are the Institutional Goals in support of the NCCT mission and to guide faculty, staff, administration, and the governing board decisions as it may relate to strategic planning, resource capacity and allocation, and program development and quality. Student objectives and program learning outcomes are identified for each degree offering in support of NCCT’s mission. This first development of an IE plan is NCCT’s promise of serving the mission, committing to continuous institutional and program improvement, and enhancing quality and transparency within and outside of institutional borders.

  1. Academic Goal: Provide biblically enhanced instruction and enrichment for personal and professional development within an ecumenical ethos, for Servant-hood in the Marketplace, the Church, and the World (while instilling the recognition of the authority of scripture).
  2. Strategic Goal: Use technology to create an effective mode and mean of instruction that expands access to learning to the Church, Marketplace, and the World.
  3. Spiritual Goal: Encourage student development of a biblical and balanced theology, the quest of knowledge and truth. This goal is especially important for ABHE accreditation.
  4. Operational Goal: To maintain and refine support systems for enhancing college functions (operations), faculty and staff development, and student success.
  5. Financial Infrastructure Goal: Increase revenue and resources to fiscally strengthen the institutions for long-term financial security.

Academic Institutional Goal

NCCT commits to students to provide quality programs and experiences in support of the institutional academic goal.  In alignment with the overarching institutional academic goal, each degree program offers student learning objectives for sustaining the programmatic purpose, enhancing student achievement during the educational experience, and impacting the greater community of servant-hood.
