Pulaski Technical College’s Values - “The Three I’s: Integrity, Improvement, and Individuality.”
Integrity means that we align our actions with our commitments and deliver what we promise. We strive to uphold our mission to our students, stakeholders and fellow employees. The core value of the College embraces the axiom, “Integrity of the grade leads to respect for the degree.” We value open communication and strive to be fair and transparent in our processes.
Improvement involves setting and achieving goals. We strive for continuous improvement in all aspects of serving our stakeholders and campus community. We work to recognize the goals of our students, faculty, staff, administration, community and other stakeholders and are dedicated to facilitating their success through efficacy and discipline. We value improvement and strive to set an example for those we are serving.
Individuality is the recognition that we serve a diverse population of students, faculty and staff. We strive to provide an environment that is adaptable, collaborative, innovative, disciplined and respectful. We see the student as an individual with personal, academic and professional goals. We do not teach curriculum, rather we teach students and are moved by the students to implement the curriculum to facilitate student success. It is our responsibility to help those we serve realize their hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Pulaski Technical College will be Arkansas’ leading comprehensive two-year college, focused on student success and recognized regionally for excellence in workforce development and university-transfer education.
