I am pleased to welcome you to this written overview of Housatonic Community College. In these pages you will find a wealth of information about the college, its over 60 degree and certificate programs, its policies and procedures, and specifics you need to know about life at HCC from admission to graduation.
While the website is an important resource and reference for your Housatonic experience, I want to assure you that it isn’t the whole story. It gives you names and qualifications of the faculty and staff, but it doesn’t express how much they care about every student on the HCC campus and everything they do to help each student achieve success.
The website describes student activities and opportunities, but when you attend workshops, listen to lectures, become involved with on-campus clubs and organizations, you will have the opportunity to expand your HCC experience and make new friends. At HCC, you spend each day surrounded by the paintings, sculptures, and drawings that comprise the Housatonic Museum on view throughout the campus.
HCC can provide you with skills that meet the needs of the business and professional community, making you valuable in the workplace. You can brush up your skills or prepare to transfer to a four-year institution. At HCC you will find programs to help you realize your dreams and ambitions, and people to help you get there.
I welcome you to Housatonic!
Paul Broadie II, Ph.D., President
