Collegewide Communications, Health Sciences, Health & Physical Education, and Humanities (CHSHPEH) Unit 

In 2014, after several years of design and planning, the academic structure of Montgomery College was reorganized to help students succeed and complete their education. This new structure, with four units of thoughtfully-aligned disciplines, will better address student needs and learning outcomes. The ability to make these modifications -- whether to facilities, programs or support services--is necessary to address shifting demographics and economic changes. The critical aspect in these activities is to be able to predict the needs of the future and to respond quickly. We are prepared to meet the challenges of taking our campus and college mission into the future– locally, nationally and globally. We are most proud of the fact that, in the midst of this growth and change, we have maintained our steadfast commitment to open access and to academic quality.
