Through all our work at North Island College, our primary focus is student success, which is reflected in the Mission, Vision and Values of the college.


North Island College’s vision is to be a premier community and destination college, in a spectacular west-coast environment, that inspires and prepares students for success in a rapidly changing world.


North Island College is committed to meeting the education and training needs of adults within our service region by providing high quality, affordable higher education and skills training, collaborating with our partners to create pathways to learning, and empowering individuals to achieve their full potential.


Student success, access to learning and services, accountability, quality, relevance and responsiveness, a positive organizational culture, and social and environmental responsibility frame our commitment to our students and communities.
