Long Range Planning & College Priorities

Long range planning meeting 2014

Every few years, HCC undertakes a coordinated planning process to accomplish and improve the achievement of its mission. During this time, the college's Long Range Planning Committee, together with HCC students, faculty and staff, meet to develop a set of college priorities. The planning cycle includes:

  • A review of progress achieved toward current priorities
  • Consideration of opportunities, constraints and trends likely to impact the college
  • The development of a course of action to achieve college priorities 

  • Publication of a progress report, such as this, from 2014-2015.
