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.”
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.
