Houston is the most economically viable city in the country and depends on a strong and job-relevant community college like HCC.

The community benefits from better job and investment opportunities, higher business revenues and the economic contributions of HCC’s students and alumni.

Houston Community College prepares students for the technological challenges and changes of the future. The jobs in the fastest-growing and highest-paying segments of the new economy require education or technical training beyond high school. HCC is vital to our community’s continued success.
