The Organization

Houston Community College is one of the largest institutions of higher education in the country with 23 operating locations and more than 100,000 students each semester, including more international students (nearly 8%) than any community college in the country. HCC provides academic courses for transfer to four-year institutions, technical degrees and certificates in more than 70 fields of work, continuing education, corporate training, lifelong learning and enrichment programs, the largest adult education program in Texas and a diversity of Distance Education offerings (18,000 online students and growing). Since opening in 1971, more than 2 million students have obtained education and training from Houston Community College. 

HCC’s international profile was recently featured in a New York Times article: “Few campuses illustrate globalization better than Houston Community College, which tops the institute’s list of colleges that grant associate degrees. HCC has 5,208 international students from 200-plus countries, more foreign students than any other two-year college. And among all institutions of higher education, four- or two-year, it ranks 29th, ahead of prestigious destinations like Stanford, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, George Washington University and the University of California, Davis.”  

Houston Community College’s Vision “to be a leader in providing high quality, innovative education leading to student success and completion of workforce academic programs – and to be responsive to community needs and drive economic development in the communities they serve,” continues to be realized daily, as more students get placed into jobs and with more exemplary workforce programs than any college in Texas (twenty-six have been rated exemplary by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board), first in the nation in producing minority graduates in the country among 2-year public community colleges, more classes taught by PhD’s, and the nation’s most innovative financial aid programs.  HCC’s ROI to the community is $5 for every $1 invested; past students have contributed $4 billion to the community. One of HCC’s campuses - Coleman College for Health Sciences - has a stated vision to be the preeminent health sciences community college in the nation, providing its students unsurpassed access to world-renowned health science resources as a member institution of the Texas Medical Center – the world’s largest medical district with one of the highest densities of clinical facilities for patient care, basic science, and translational research of any location on the planet.
