Is there an announcement you wish to make at our upcoming Fall Faculty In-Service?

The planning committee is preparing an “Announcement Presentation” to recognize current administrative initiatives at Hillsborough Community College. Your message will be shown prior to the General Session to all attendees and post the event to the college on the CITT website.

There will be no time during the General Session to have each dean present announcements. This is a great opportunity to communicate the services available to faculty and students at your campus and within your programs. Join us in using this medium to collectively improve our communication, and enhance the impact of HCC in the community.

You can email your announcement, including any images, video clips, and links to the planning committee, attention Lauretta O’Dell at The committee will take care of the rest.
