Chancellor Leslie meets with press

Dr. Bruce H. Leslie, Chancellor of the Houston Community College System met with local press representatives at a luncheon last Friday.
In his informal address, Dr. Leslie discussed the role of the college system in the community and its need to expand.

HCC works closely with the Houston Independent School District to prepare students to go on to a four year college or to enter the job world in a variety of careers that require specialized training.

Approximately 100,000 students pass through the system each year.

Dr. Leslie cited the need for the college to offer courses in growing fields such as environmental science, a move that will necessitate increased funding. He estimated that HCC will require an additional $6 million per year to meet the future needs of its students.
