A Message from the President

I am honored to build upon the educational legacy that has served this fine institution for more than four decades. PHSC's growth and expansion reflects the high quality of instruction and services offered, distinguishing us as among the most progressive colleges in the Florida College System and among the most affordable, quality colleges in the nation.

Pasco-Hernando State College is governed by a nine-member District Board of Trustees (DBOT), who are appointed by the governor. Since the College's inception, PHSC presidents and administrative leaders have developed resources, fostered community involvement and inspired academic excellence.

PHSC always has and always will aspire to excellence. The College will continue its innovative practices to meet the academic and workforce needs of our growing economy. Our team of faculty, staff and administrators has the commitment and passion to work together on the student's behalf. A variety of programs and services exist at PHSC to help our students succeed. Career and educational assessments can assist with developing an academic path to achieve goals as well as explore future employment. Tutoring services and other academic resources can support students who may struggle academically...and our many clubs and organizations can help students in their personal, social, and professional growth.

The College's success is very much connected with its core values: Excellence, Integrity, Success, Equity, Community - all of which can help our students accomplish their lifetime goals.

Timothy L. Beard, Ph.D.

PHSC President
