Chancellor with students

Blog Headlines


Welcome to Houston Community College.

As one of the largest community colleges in the nation, HCC has served the Greater Houston area for over four decades. Instruction in more than 300 associate degree and certificate programs is provided to nearly 70,000 students each semester.

As chancellor of this great institution, it is my honor and pleasure to work alongside the best and brightest education has to offer and to interact with students on a daily basis.

HCC is the leader of innovative education and is quickly transforming into the College of the Future. Our Centers of Excellence align with industry needs by offering high quality education and training with 21st Century tools that will allow students to move on to four-year universities or move right into a job where the hands on experience they received from us can immediately be put to good use.

HCC is #1 among all community colleges in providing associate degrees to minorities and #1 in educating international students, with 10.4 percent of our student population from outside the USA. The average age student at HCC is 27 years old, and 70 percent of our students attend school part-time while they work or raise a family.

Our greatest goal will always be your success.

I invite you to explore this website to see the wonderful, educational opportunities Houston Community College has to offer.  Feel free reach out to me here or follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

I look forward to hearing from you.
