Hillsborough Community College has a clearly defined and published organizational structure (HCC Organizational Chart). The organizational structure, including the names and titles of all College administrators, is published on the HCC's Office of Human Resources (HR) website within the College’s website, HR’s public electronic folders on the College’s intranet, the HCC Catalog, and other College publications.  HCC's organizational structure is updated monthly and placed in the HR public folders for College community access.   

Hillsborough Community College's administrative policy delineates responsibility for the administration of College policies. HCC's organizational structure defines the various roles of administrative and academic officers by delineating their roles within the appropriate reporting structure. This policy also defines the process to change College policy (HCC Administrative Rule 6HX-10-2.02). 

Per the biennial planning process of the college, the HCC District Board of Trustees has the policy-making authority to establish the College's strategic direction as articulated in the College mission and goals.  Following approval by the Board, all units of the College develop action plans and annual reports of progress toward fulfillment of College goals. Please see Core Requirement 2.5 for more detail.

The HCC President's Cabinet, which implements College policies as set by the Board of Trustees, includes the College President, the Senior Vice President for Operations, the Vice President for Education and Student Development, the Vice President for Administration/Chief Financial Officer, the Vice President for Information Technology, four Campus Presidents, the Executive Director of Strategic Planning and Analysis, the Executive Director for Marketing and Publications, the Executive Director of Human Resources, and the Executive Director of the HCC Foundation, Inc.

The HCC Board of Trustees approves any changes to the organizational structure as recommended by the President (HCC Administrative Rule 6HX-10-2.00).
