President's Message regarding coronavirus

Message from the President on the Coronavirus


In a continued effort to protect the health and safety of our students and employees during the global coronavirus pandemic, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, will provide remote instruction and services and virtual learning for the spring 2021 semester. Specifically, the five campuses will remain closed to the majority of HACC students and employees until May 14, 2021. A select group of students and employees will be allowed on the campuses to complete hands-on components of some of their classes.

I continue to be impressed and inspired by our students and employees who have worked so hard to make the successful transition of HACC’s instruction and services to remote and virtual learning in response to the global coronavirus pandemic. I know it has not been easy to juggle family, school and work responsibilities while maintaining your and your family’s well-being. I understand, and your feelings are valid. Please be assured that your health and safety are at the forefront of our decisions.

One lesson I have taken from this experience is that our College can innovate at a rapid pace. I believe that we have taken on this challenge with a positive spirit and will make improvements that will extend beyond the pandemic

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!
