HCC has achieved many significant outcomes
under the Board’s leadership and guidance. 2009

for HCC. Accomplishments include record student
enrollment, significant expansion of philanthropic

national and international partnerships.
The following summary provides an overview of the

LETTER FROM THEBOARD CHAIR AnD CHAnCELLOR
To community leaders and supporters,On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we are grateful for your continued support of Houston Community College as we work together to play a vital role in our community through developing an educated and skilled workforce,thereby contributing to the region’s robust economy. Our role is equally, if not more, important for our students.They are our future and represent our investment in the continued quality of life we want to enjoy and protect. As we review the achievements of 2009, we recognize there has never been a more important time in the history of community colleges than now. We are proud of how HCC has matured both for and with our community.We are at the forefront of what is working in community colleges and higher education. And that is evidenced inHCC’s record numbers – more than 69,000 students in 2009, #1 in the region transferring students to the collegeof their choice, the largest number of exemplary workforce programs in the state (26), as well as more than $5.10 returned for every tax dollar received. And we are still able to maintain among the lowest tax rates and costs ($57  per credit hour) in the state.We are proud of these accomplishments and the contributions we make to our city and our students. We recognizewe still have important goals yet to accomplish. We will continue to strive for an unequalled level of educationalexcellence because we want to be the standard by which community colleges are measured. As we boldly state in our vision, we are working hard to become “the most relevant community college in thecountry.” To do that we must meet the needs of all our students and the communities we serve. We hope that you,our community leaders and supporters, will recognize the progress we are making toward achieving this vision as you read our annual report.We look forward to continuing to partner with you to make Houston the opportunity city for the future.Sincerely,
Dr. Michael P. Williams
