1) achievement of academic goals and development of leadership skills;
2) maintenance of USC Lancaster's image through exemplary behavior on and off the field and through the promotion and practice of community service; and
3) competition at the highest level in accordance with the tenets of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
