E.4 International Initiatives

Responsible Department: Instruction

Date Approved/Amended: January 20, 2011



HCC recognizes the importance of providing students with an international and intercultural focus in learning. While HCC emphasizes service to its local community, therefore, it shall also support appropriate international initiatives for students and faculty.

To promote these initiatives, HCC may enter into Agreements of Academic Affiliation, Technical Assistance Contracts, or other formal relationships with educational institutions internationally. Such agreements do not transfer the HCC Commission on Colleges/ Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accreditation to any international partner or its students unless a substantive change is approved by SACS.
