President's Message regarding coronavirus

Message from the President on the Coronavirus


As a precautionary measure in response to the spread of the new coronavirus and the stay-at-home order given to the state of Pennsylvania, the campuses of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, will remain closed until Aug 17. This date is tentative and subject to change. However, please note that the College is still open. We are providing remote learning and services for our students and remote working opportunities for our employees.

Although these times are difficult, it warms my heart each day to hear of various HACC students and employees going above and beyond under these extraordinary circumstances. Six months ago, I doubt any of us would have thought that we could do this. But we are. People are helping others, and we are recognizing what is truly important in life.

Please know that we are continuing to look ahead and make decisions that will help you succeed now and in the future. As John Lennon said, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.”

As the situation evolves, please be assured that the health and safety of our students and employees will be at the forefront of those decisions.

We will continue to communicate about this situation and update

Thank you!

John J. “Ski” Sygielski, MBA, Ed.D.
President and CEO
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College
