Conflict/tension between our mission (to serve the local community and the north country of NH) and our context (need to search for students out of state to combat decreasing enrollment and local demographics of an aging and decreasing population). There is also a tension within our mission, of striving to prepare students for a global economy while also desiring to be locally-focused. Are we preparing students for what is (the actual state of the local or NH economy) or what could be (to change that economy by creating different and new types of jobs and opportunities).
