Support future community leaders through student experiential learning.
HCaP's inaugural year as a new college was launched at the beginning of the pandemic, not giving us a complete chance to introduce ourselves. Yet, despite the circumstances, we have pushed our unique mission in the community! Now that 2022 is here, we are 'Taking Two on 2020' and it's Lights, Camera, Action!
Please help us raise funds for our students and faculty that participate in our community. In 2021 alone, our students gave back 95,000 hours to our community in unpaid internships. In addition, our students work hard to meet the demands of obtaining a degree by participating in various student research and experiential learning opportunities. These connections allow for a competitive advantage in finding permanent career placement, which is in our backyard for most.
