About HACC

On Feb. 14, 1964, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, became the first community college in Pennsylvania.

Proudly YOURS, we are the largest and oldest community college in Pennsylvania. We offer more than 120 programs across our five campuses and online.  We encourage you to learn more about us, starting with our mission and strategic plan.

A diverse team of  professionals leads the College, including HACC President John J. "Ski"   Sygielski, Ed.D., HACC’s Board of Trustees and the President’s Cabinet.

Our history shows how much the College has grown in serving its students and the needs of the community. Since the first Commencement ceremony in 1964, the College has graduated more than 48,170 students – this is only one of many facts about HACC.

Additionally, do you know the College may award an honorary degree of Doctor of Public Service (D.P.S.) to outstanding community leaders? Please review our information about the D.P.S. degree.
