Board of Trustees' Statement

Re: June 2020 Legal Proceedings

The Board of Trustees of Houston Community College takes any allegation against the college seriously.  We, as one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in the country, are unwavering in our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.  Our policies and procedures align with this deep and long-held commitment. 

We remain committed to carefully reviewing and understanding the totality of the facts.  We look forward to a thorough, thoughtful, and just review during these legal proceedings while we continue to work with the HCC administration in our shared commitment to a safe, inclusive environment for our students, faculty, staff and community.  Because this is pending litigation, we are not able to comment further.
