My Plan

Every two years, HCC undertakes a coordinated planning process to accomplish and improve the achievement of its mission. The planning cycle includes:

  • Consideration of opportunities, constraints and trends likely to impact the college,

The most important ingredient in the planning process is the participation of individuals like you. Everyone has something to contribute -- and your contribution really matters.

Together we are responsible for achieving the college's mission.  

The Long Range Planning Committee is pleased to announce that the FY14-15 college priorities listed below were approved by the Senate November 28. These priorities will be presented to the Board of Trustees in January. Next semester the LRPC will work with the vice presidents to evaluate the current priorities and develop an action plan for the new priorities.
