Houston Community College, State of the College Address

hcc logo I attended the Houston Community College, State of the College Address this morning.

Impressions

  • Getting invited to “save the date” by post card two months ago. 
    Talk about advance notice!
    And,

  • it was mailed to my LLC address which means they keep track of Greater Houston businesses.
  • Hearing Houston Mayor Annise Parker live and seeing her in person.
    Houston has the coolest mayors I know.
  • Meeting friendly HCC staff, students, and fellow community supporters.
  • Breakfast at the ever-superb Junior League of Houston facility.
  • Introducing myself to the trustees of two HCC zones where I have worked in the past.
    There are 18 campuses divided into 7 geographical areas of Greater Houston.
    It’s been several years since I did education work but I’ve been getting back into it.

Statistics

  • #1 community college in the US for international student enrollment.
    Houston has substantive mixed demographics.
  • #1 community college in Texas for placing students in jobs when they graduate
  • HCC is an important bridge school in Houston between K-12 and University.
    In fact it has five Early College High Schools, all rated Exemplary by TEA and Silver by US News and World Report.
