HoCo Community College Gets New Prez

The local papers all report that HCC's prez is stepping down. Mary Ellen Duncan, who oversaw unprecedented growth during nine years at the once-struggling institution in Columbia, announced her retirement, to be succeeded by the college's executive vice president, Kate Hetherington. I found this number enlightening in the Post's story:

"The community college's annual tuition and fees, amounting to $3,020 a year for a full-time, in-county student, have risen in recent years and are among the highest for Maryland community colleges."

Here's a comparison. This is what Harvard is charging in tuition and fee charges for the 2006-2007 academic year:

Full-time Students Per Academic Year $30,544.00
