TARGET STUDENT AUDIENCE:
students ages 18 to 35 who desire personal and professional guidance for their
academic and career goals. HCC has a wide array of nationalities (over 70
countries are represented on the Dale Mabry Campus alone). Our campus is a
Hispanic serving institution with a majority female student base of which 40%
are of Black or Hispanic heritage. In addition to these populations, we plan
reach out to women from all cultures, especially those who come from countries
where women are traditionally placed in menial or subservient roles. Our campus
is located in a blighted area and a majority of those attending are on federal
financial aid and come from families who rely on welfare to subsidize their
incomes. We want to help these promising young women to achieve the dreams to
which they aspire.
