Henderson, KY – On November 27, 2019, Dr. Jason Warren, President & CEO of Henderson Community College (HCC) and Dr. Robert Jackson, President of Murray State University (MSU) along with other representatives from each college, signed a new Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to be continued through June 30, 2021.

This MOA describes the responsibilities and partnership between HCC and MSU’s Henderson Regional Campus, which is located on the campus of HCC. Warren said, “I appreciate the cooperative spirit and collegiality encouraged by Dr. Jackson. HCC and MSU have a long-standing partnership. Our teams work very well together. The revised MOU we have signed builds on our existing relationship and further enhances it for the benefit of our local community.”

The MOA outlines how the institutions will share both facilities and personnel, participate in joint promotional efforts and offer seamless 2+2 degree programs. This endeavor intends to leverage limited dollars for maximum benefit to the local community while meeting the needs of the local workforce. Administrators, faculty and staff at both institutions see great value in extending quality education opportunities to Henderson area students.
