Institutional Advisory Council Rescinds Vote
In a special session held Tuesday afternoon, the executive council of the Institutional Advisory Council at Hillsborough Community College voted unanimously to rescind their vote of September 4, 2015 that removed the opportunity to recite the Pledge of Allegiance during their council meetings.
“I am pleased that the executive council of the IAC recognized that this action did not represent the principles our college community values. They resolved the issue in a swift and decisive manner and can now move forward with continuing to serve their campuses and this college in a positive manner, “said HCC President Dr. Ken Atwater.
