College Communications

Keep up with what's happening at HCC!

Henderson Community College has many avenues for communicating with the faculty and staff. Here are the ways to find out what is happening around our three locations.

Green Street Journal and other college newsletters - The GSJ is produced weekly during the Fall and Spring semesters. It has useful information about the activities taking place on campus plus information from the President.

Also, take time to explore our site and you might be surprised at all of the information available. Here are two helpful links:

Faculty and Staff Resources

SharePoint - SharePoint is KCTCS's repository for documents and collaboration. Bookmark the Henderson Transformation Team site and find access to Leadership Team, Faculty Meeting and Staff Meeting minutes as well as other important college information.

Collaboration Resources

Skype communication - If you need to contact someone quickly, then try Instant Messaging. With IM you are able to carry on a conversation instead of waiting for the e-mail to bounce back-and-forth. Need help on how to use Skype? Contact the Technology Solutions Help Desk at 831-9616.

Do you need to get the word out?

Do you need to get your event publicized? Your first contact should be with the Public Relations Office. Jennifer Preston can assist you with knowing which avenues to take and what approvals are needed to get the word out for your event or activity.

Facebook, Twitter, electronic marquee, and electronic bulletin boards: Contact Janet Jackson for Facebook, Twitter and bulletin boards; Contact John Merrill for the electronic marquee.
