The Division of Instruction provides learning opportunities for all students at Haywood Community College. The Division of Instruction empowers individuals through educational challenges in order to realize their potential to succeed and enrich their communities.

The Division of Instruction purposefully promotes:

  1. Critical thinking, communication & collaboration
  2. Academically rigorous, yet accessible, educational experiences
  3. A supportive, student-centric learning environment
  4. Ethical & Civic minded individuals

In order to accomplish these objectives, the Division of Instruction administratively houses five departments. The three departments of Arts, Sciences, and Natural Resources, Business and Industry, and Health and Human Services provide learners with the opportunity to earn a degree, diploma, or certificate in 23 different programs of study that prepare students for technical careers or college transfer.

The department of College and Career Readiness assists those learners who are working towards a high school equivalency diploma or wish to improve basic skills. Additionally, Learning Support Services (LSS) is housed in the Department of College and Career Readiness. LSS provides services including free tutoring, testing, and a variety of workshops to help students be successful, and reach their instructional goals.

The department of Workforce Continuing Education provides learners with training in public services (Basic Law Enforcement Training, Firefighting, Emergency Services, CNA, etc.), customized industry training, computer training, professional CEUs for a variety of fields, and courses for personal enrichment. The Division of Instruction also houses the Career and College Promise program which allows students to earn college credit (tuition free) while still in high school.
