The Hagerstown Community College Board of Trustees and the Presidential Search Screening Committee are conducting a national search for HCC's fourth president in its 71-year history. This follows the announcement that President Guy Altieri will retire, effective Dec. 31, 2017.
HCC was founded in 1946 as Maryland’s first community college. It is a two-year public community college offering both transfer and career-oriented programs, as well as continuing education classes. More than 100 programs of study are now offered. Each year, approximately 6,000 students take classes for college credit and 7,000 students take non-credit classes.
