Philosophy of Trust and Respect

American Flag

At Ocean County College, we operate on a philosophy of trust and respect. Trust is a key ingredient in any positive, productive relationship. Trust exists whenever you choose to let yourself be dependent on another person whose future behavior can affect your well-being.

Our hope is that you, our students, will learn by your experience that your trust in us is well founded. We are guided by what is best for you. Our faculty and staff are committed to delivering the highest quality education offered anywhere in the nation and to providing services that you will recognize as efficient, empathetic, and responsive - services that will ultimately exceed your expectations.

We recognize that students' needs are not all the same, but vary among individuals and groups. Ocean County College continues to identify the diverse needs of our students so that we can provide each of you with a specific educational program tailored to meet your needs.
