Welcome from the President
Welcome to the Office of the President at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC)! I hope you find your cyber visit informative and energizing. As you explore this Web site, you will learn about our innovative initiatives and programs, meet our remarkable employees and understand our guiding principles and values, which were established more than 40 years ago and have helped shape MHCC into the outstanding academic institution it is today. I encourage you to see for yourself all MHCC has to offer by visiting one of our many locations.
As with any expedition or journey, planning is the key to success. To prepare for the future, MHCC developed a strategic plan for 2009-12 that focuses on three key core themes: Teaching and Learning, Community Engagement and Resource Development. The College is also evaluating its master plans with an eye for renovations and future growth.
The College, like many other state agencies in Oregon and across the nation, is feeling the effects of the economic downturn. However, MHCC remains committed to helping students achieve their dreams and conquer their educational goals. In fact there is no better time to come to MHCC, a comprehensive community college, to seek a degree, explore a new career, take university transfer credit classes, enroll in non-credit training and/or personal enrichment classes or engage in the many exciting and diverse social, cultural and athletic events hosted at one of MHCC's three locations.
The College is an exceptional place to explore your potential, discover new skills and interests and, ultimately, change your destiny! If you have questions about the admissions process and how to get started on your educational journey, please contact the Admissions, Registration and Records Office at 503-491-7393.
