Office of the President

Dr. Hetherington Speaking with Students
Providing pathways to success. It's much more than our mission. It's an expression of our commitment to the community we serve. We provide students of all ages with educational opportunities that will take them wherever they want to go -- admission to a four-year college or university, and employment in a rewarding career or the attainment of personal goals. We provide affordable education to prepare students for the workforce of the future. We also embrace our role as a cultural and business force in the community, where all students and employees feel supported and empowered on their personal pathways to success.

HCC is a vital part of life in Howard County, enrolling almost 30,000 students annually in credit and noncredit programs. In addition, thousands of community members visit our art galleries, Rep Stage, or other live performances in our magnificent Horowitz Center, or they participate in one of our celebrated events.

Our college community is a bustling and exciting hub of education and discovery. If you are new to Howard Community College, our website gives you a sense of all the good things happening here, but I invite you to come experience it for yourself. If you're a student, alumnus, employee or visitor, thanks for being part of it all! 

Warmest regards,

Kathleen Hetherington, Ed.D.
President
