General Information About Oakton Community College
We are dedicated, first, to excellence in teaching and learning. We challenge our students to experience the hard work and satisfaction of learning that leads to intellectual growth and support them academically, emotionally and socially. We encourage them to entertain and question ideas, think critically, solve problems and engage with other cultures, with one another and with us. We expect our students to assume responsibility for their own learning, to exercise leadership and to apply ethical principles in their academic, work and personal lives. We demand from ourselves and our students tolerance, fairness, responsibility, compassion and integrity.
