Centers of Excellence

HCC’s fourteen Centers of Excellence focus on top-notch faculty and industry best practices to give students the skills they need for a successful career. The programs range from manufacturing and global energy to logistics, engineering, fashion design and information technology. For more information, please visit www.hccs.edu/centers.

Deans & Chairs

The instructional leaders’ model at Houston Community College (HCC) is anchored in the commitment to shared governance. The role of the instructional leader is central and crucial to carrying out the system’s mission and affirming its values. Instructional leaders are integral to linking the college’s major constituent groups: students, faculty, administration, and the community.

As a result of Transformation, all instructional programs have been clustered into instructional units that represent academic and workforce programs. Those instructional units are led by either a Dean or Director. The Deans and Directors represent the highest level of instructional leadership at the colleges. The faculty-led instructional leadership at HCC includes four categories: Chairs, Program Directors, Associate Chairs, and Program Coordinators. 

All of the instructional leader positions are system-wide positions providing faculty with more flexibility in class scheduling, professional development, and collaboration. Instructional leaders serve as invaluable intermediaries between students, faculty, and administration. As we continue to focus on teaching and learning, the instructional leaders are hugely important in the future of HCC.

The primary responsibility of the Department/Program Chair or Program Director is to provide instructional or operational leadership for assigned programs. They are responsible for ensuring the alignment of departmental activities with the institution’s strategic plan.

Program Coordinators & Program Directors

The Program Coordinator role and responsibilities are to facilitate development and maintenance of program curriculum and core curriculum in collaboration with the program faculty committee, dean and department chair to ensure that awards & certificates offered at Houston Community College are always up-to-date and meet industry needs while providing pathways to 4-year institutions.  Additionally, program coordinators maintain and collect data on program learning outcomes (PLOs, CLOs, and SLOs), Core Curriculum courses and provide a Program Review on a cycle that support both the missions of the program and the institution. 

The primary responsibility of the Department/Program Chair or Program Director is to provide instructional or operational leadership for assigned programs. They are responsible for ensuring the alignment of departmental activities with the institution’s strategic plan and are responsible for program coordinator responsibilities ensuring curriculum development and maintenance, instructional assessment, and support for the dean with appropriate programs.

Faculty

What sets HCC apart is its faculty, individuals who bring theory and practice to life in the classroom. HCC’s faculty, many of whom hold doctorates, teach in several learning modalities and are accomplished academicians, as well as successful in their respective professional fields. More than 3,600 professors who have a passion for teaching, HCC students benefit from a wealth of real world experience that the faculty brings to the classroom. Unlike other institutions of higher learning, HCC’s faculty members are not paid to conduct research; however, they do it anyway in order to further their knowledge, change the future and help their students. As you learn more about the quality of HCC’s faculty and the level of education they offer, you begin to understand why more students choose HCC for education and training. And, why some of the brightest minds in academics and business are choosing HCC as their teaching home. Please visit the Full-Time Faculty  list.
