Link New Parking Rules and Regulations begin 01/02/2020
All HCC students, staff and faculty are required to display a parking permit on their vehicle. To park on a Houston Community College campus, you must display a valid HCC parking permit unless you are a visitor. Displaying a permit does not guarantee a parking place but allows you to park if space is available. At this time there is no charge for parking at most HCC locations and parking permits are a safety measure so that HCC Police can recognize your vehicle as one belonging to a registered student, staff or faculty member. Contact HCC Police Department: 713-718-8770

Link Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
This is the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP), which as of March 2018, has nearly 1600 entries online. From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up-to-date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. You can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in our Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected.
