Message from the President
Katherine M. Johnson, President
Welcome to Pasco-Hernando State College
Congratulations! You have made an excellent choice in selecting PHSC as your college. The 2013-14 academic year promises to be another exciting, eventful year at PHSC. Our fifth full service campus, the Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, opened January 13, 2014 to serve growing southeast Pasco County. PHSC continues to expand our academic horizons as we offer and develop new associate degree programs and prepare to provide baccalaureate-level degrees next fall. These monumental developments will provide further opportunities for our students and defines PHSC as an institution that embraces innovation and seeks to provide the highest level of educational services for the communities we serve.
PHSC now serves approximately 17,000 students and contributes more that $240 million to the region’s economy annually. Our growth can be attributed to our efforts to serve each individual student. Whether students have a clear academic plan in place or are considering career options, PHSC is here to provide assistance and support. Guidance is available for students who wish to accelerate academic goals and for those who can benefit from extra academic support and guidance.
Recently, PHSC adapted a new statement to encourage students to succeed. This simple statement is Imagine. Believe. Achieve.
What is your vision for your future? Imagine it. Believe in your potential. And most certainly, you will achieve your dreams.
Someday soon we hope to congratulate you again—as you complete your degree or program and join the ranks of the more than 34,000 graduates who also chose PHSC as their college.
Katherine M. Johnson, Ed.D.
