Day by day, HSC continues to persevere through the challenges of COVID-19. Following Governor Greg Abbott’s announcement of a plan to gradually reopen Texas businesses, I am sure many of you have questions about HSC’s plans moving forward.

A quick update on where we are:

First, HSC leadership is in the process of formulating plans for a gradual re-opening of campus beginning in June.  To be sure, the health and well-being of HSC team members is our top concern. A team of HSC leaders is utilizing state and federal re-opening protocols, as well as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Our goal is to create a plan that that will allow HSC to transition safely and efficiently toward more normal operations.

Secondly, the budgeting process for fiscal year 2020-21 is underway. As you can imagine, the COVID-19 crisis has created a great deal of uncertainty, and we must plan responsibly. We will share more information on the budget process as it becomes available.

As you know, this health crisis is fluid, and we must all stay flexible and resilient.  I will plan to communicate more information as it becomes available. My sincere appreciation to all of YOU for the Extraordinary Teamwork that keeps HSC strong and productive.

With appreciation,


Dr. Michael R. Williams
