Let’s celebrate!

We are proud that HCC and the HCC Foundation are celebrating the College’s 50th Anniversary in 2018-2019! Join us to commemorate five decades of innovation and inspiration! Click here to see the Tampa Bay Times article about the impact of HCC.

Now through March, we are opening our doors to the community for special campus-based celebrations that reflect the spirit and unique identity of each of our locations and the communities they serve. See below for dates and more information, and click here to view photos of past events. On Saturday, April 27, 2019, we conclude this milestone year with a community celebration that will invite all Tampa Bay residents to see the momentous impact of HCC, past, present, and future.

The HCC Foundation will also help blaze a trail to our future, commemorating the anniversary and helping us rise together, supporting the College through a comprehensive funding campaign: HCC Rising: Together We Lift Our Community.
