In the 1970s & early 1980s, a group of citizens from Camp, Morris, and Titus Counties decided that residents of this part of Northeast Texas deserved the opportunity for a better life through higher education. Northeast Texas Community College opened its doors just a few short years later in 1985.
Northeast Texas Community College is committed to transforming the lives of our students through all means available. Students will be challenged to acquire the values and habits associated with post-secondary education. Students will be exposed to the world beyond their prior experience. The education provided at NTCC will be active and require full engagement of both students and colleges. We will seek to make a fundamental impact on the mindset, worldview, and aspirations of our students, through personal involvement between faculty/staff and students.
The college environment will encourage creative instructional approaches, particularly those that provide students with greater opportunity for direct participation in learning. Because we believe that transformative learning results in changes in behavior, the college will encourage personal responsibility, hard work, and accountability.
