Speaking of getting started, we’re launching a new college-wide IT infrastructure that will form the backbone to a cutting-edge portal for comprehensive student and employee services. Our provider develops robust solutions for colleges and businesses around the nation – we’re very excited to soon have this technology at our fingertips to better serve students.
In this issue of Communiqué you’ll also get an update on results from our Workforce Summit, and read about the college receiving a $4.2 million behest – our largest single gift to date. The DSC Foundation gives nearly $1 million in scholarships each year – and that’s only 30 percent of the applicants.
In the Notables section, we’re happy once again to share our standing among the nation’s top 100 associate degree producers – for the second consecutive year – among some 5,000 public and private institutions.
Finally, our service to veterans has earned us the coveted designation of a Military Friendly School. Some 1,300 vets are enrolled at DSC – we look forward to each and every one of them reaching their goals in civilian life.
Please enjoy this latest Communiqué as we embrace the excitement and challenges of the new academic year.

Daytona State College
