HCC’s student population mirrors the compositions of ethnic diversity in the Hillsborough County community.  Therefore, HCC promotes a holistic approach to enrollment management that champions student access as well as retention.  This is represented in the campus recruitment plans as well as college wide initiatives such as the Student Success, Retention, & Graduation Committee, Enrollment Management Steering Committee; the annual Black, Brown & College Bound National Summit;  Success Is a Choice Youth Summit;  Achieving the Dream grant; Title III grant; and  Title V Grant proposal.  These initiatives are reflective of the College’s goals to “advance student success through a focus on the achievement of learning outcomes for all students with the active involvement of all employees.”  As well, these enrollment and academic success plans support the College’s strategic initiatives.

HCC ensures that all potential students have access to information.  Information is provided through publications, radio and television announcements, and outreach workshops. Several efforts are made to contact underrepresented groups.  All campuses establish unique recruitment plans and implement them through the Enrollment Development Coordinators.
