Ybor City Campus Community Forum

Dear HCC and Ybor City Campus Community Partners and Friends:


Thank you for your past support of Hillsborough Community College, the Ybor City Campus, and me in our efforts to better the lives of thousands of students and their families each year. Your guidance and attention have been invaluable.


With that, I invite you to attend our next Ybor City Campus Community Forum on Thursday, October 5th at 11:45 a.m. in the Ybor Room. Lunch will be provided. The Ybor Room is in the Ybor Building at the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue. Parking is available in all HCC lots and the Student Garage at Palm Avenue and Nuccio Parkway.


We will have updates on our enrollment, our legislative initiatives, and new programs. Additionally, we will have some student presentations and networking opportunities. There will be ample time for questions and answers as well as a tour of the Campus where you will get to meet some of our instructors and students in action.


As a partner and friend of HCC and the Ybor City Campus, you are invited to participate in the Community Forum and are recognized as a member of my Campus President’s Community Advisory Council. The Council is designed to enhance open dialogue between the campus administration and the community-at-large and will focus on how the campus can support the community and how the community can support the campus.


Please RSVP to my assistant, Bridget Harris, by Friday, September 29th. She can be reached at 813-253-7754 or Everyone is welcome, so if you have colleagues or friends who would benefit from attending, please invite them as well.


I hope to see you on October 5th.


Thank you for your support of HCC and the Ybor City Campus.





Dr. Shawn H. Robinson
