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.

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|
