History of the College
Tunxis Community College was chartered by the State of Connecticut in 1969 to serve the Bristol-New Britain and Farmington Valley areas. It first opened for classes in October 1970 with 494 students; today approximately 7,000 full- and part-time students attend the College each semester enrolled in credit and continuing education classes. Yet Tunxis is still small enough to offer students individual attention. Since the first graduation in 1972, over 10,000 persons have received an associate’s degree or a certificate from the College.
As a publicly-supported learning center, Tunxis provides an array of educational service designed to meet the training, occupational, intellectual, and cultural needs of the people of its region. The College seeks to serve all those who wish to develop their knowledge and skills; it does so by making its services easily accessible and supports these services through the quality of its faculty and staff. Tunxis bases its operations on the belief that learning is best accomplished through the evaluation of current skills and knowledge, the identification of educational objectives, the determination of a proper balance between study and other responsibilities, and involvement in the educational process that meets one’s objectives.
 


Mission Statement
Tunxis Community College offers its students a quality, yet affordable education in an accessible and supportive environment, fostering the skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex world.
Vision Statement
Tunxis Community College will be a vibrant educational and cultural center responsive to current as well as emerging student and community needs.
Values and Principles
INTEGRITY
We value and demonstrate openness and honesty, resolving differences with civility and without reprisals. We speak and act truthfully, without hidden agendas. We admit our mistakes, say when we do not know, and honor our commitments. We avoid silence when it may mislead; we seek root causes and solve problems.
RESPONSIBILITY
We value institutional and individual accountability, defined as doing what needs to be done in a timely and competent manner.  By acceptance of personal responsibility for our own actions and decisions, we help to create a college at which we are proud to work.
RESPECT
We treat others fairly and with dignity. We value and honor each other in our diversity.
EXCELLENCE
We value continuous improvement and growth in every area of college life. We value collaboration, cooperation, teamwork, innovation, and creative problem solving in our continuous improvement efforts. We value the courage to take risks and provide leadership.
OPEN COMMUNICATION
We share information, ideas, and feelings—listening carefully, speaking forthrightly, respecting diverse views, participating productively in dialogue and conversations. We welcome paradox and constructive conflict as we move toward consensus.
HUMOR AND WELL-BEING
We value laughter, play, love, kindness, celebration, and joy in our learning and work—taking our learning and work seriously and ourselves lightly.
