Central Texas College

Chancellor's Message

Tom Klincar, D.A., Chancellor

Thank you for choosing Central Texas College. With a renewed focus on student success, we continue to expand opportunities for students. We focus not only on students in our 11-county service area, but also our military students and their families across the globe.

We have a lot to be proud of locally, including our award-winning speech and Enactus teams, our national champion aviation flight team, our nursing program which achieved the fourth highest pass rate for the state licensure exam, our vocational skills center which offers numerous career opportunities and the re-establishment of our police academy.

In addition, we are humbled to be recognized for our commitment to the military by being designated a Purple Heart College. CTC was among the first schools in Texas and one of a select few across the country to receive such distinction. We are consistently recognized as a military friendly school, and our faculty and staff have facilitated new veteran education initiatives including participation in the Yellow Ribbon School program and the opening of our on-campus VetSuccess Center.

Outside Texas, we continue to grow in our commitment to classroom education on military installations. We have added sites at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida and Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and now serve students on 28 military installations in the U.S. serving Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine students.  Our campuses in Europe and the Pacific Far East region and our Navy campus further extend our ability to serve military students and their families, and our distance education program provides a sound alternative for students not located near a CTC location.

We look forward to this academic year and the opportunities it brings. Our staff and faculty are focused on our mission: “Central Texas College’s accessible education supports student success and employability.”

Thank you,

Dr. Thomas Klincar

Chancellor
