Reaching your educational and life goals is why you chose to enroll in college and HCC and the Ybor City Campus is proud that you chose us. Make sure to read our First-Week Learning Principles to help set the tone for what you should expect from us and what we should expect from you.
For our adjuncts, new faculty, and those seeking to improve student learning and their teaching techniques, we have a Faculty Resource Center and faculty development programming. Students, faculty, and staff can get involved in campus governance through the Campus Advisory Council, Campus Learning Council, Campus Planning Council, and by helping to implement suggestions from our Campus Planning and Visioning Sessions. These groups have worked on projects from improving student engagement and authentic learning models to campus beautification, pedestrian safety, and technology enhancements. Shared governance is an important part of the campus environment.
On the campus, there will be many opportunities for students and employees to show their campus and college spirit in meaningful ways. Our Spirit Days remain strong at the Ybor City Campus where everyone is encouraged to wear HCC clothes each and every Thursday. Please visit the Bookstore on Thursdays to receive discounts on HCC apparel and extra discounts weekly by using your HawkCard Student ID. Student Government is active throughout the year with great programming focused on developing the student outside of the classroom and to keep students connected to the college. Don’t forget about the HCC Olympics in the Spring which is co-sponsored by the Campus Advisory Council and Student Government. To further the co-curricular theme, the Student Success Seminar Series continue to diversify its programming to include more issues of importance to students and their success in the classroom and in life as well as link up with other campus programs. For our campus faculty and staff, we will be expanding our series of Faculty and Staff Success Seminars to better develop future campus and college leaders.
I will close as I have done before. Never settle for less than excellence. I look forward to a great year in which a focus on student learning, student empowerment, teaching excellence, campus and college pride, community engagement, and camaraderie is what will take the Ybor City Campus to the next level.
Here’s to great times ahead at the Ybor City Campus!!!
