Quick Poll Closed
Thank you for participating in the Quick Poll on NIC's Mission Statement. The poll is now closed.
In total, 169 people responded to the poll, with 29% of participants (or 49 people) voting for the original statement "NIC builds healthy and resilient communities, one student at a time." Twelve votes behind, with 22.5% of the votes, was very similar, "Together, NIC builds healthy and resilient communities, one student at a time." Many more people voiced their opinion at College Plan Committee meetings, or voted via email, letting us know what needed to be changed. We appreciate every response.
Our new proposed mission, which will be presented to the Board of Governors on May 27, is posted in this news brief.
The statement now reflects students studying off Island or outside the region, greater collaboration with community partners, and alignment with the soon-to-be-released Indigenization Plan, which shares part of the same name. The word resilient, which has become heavily associated with COVID-19, has been replaced with “thriving.”
