“Going to college” these days means different things to many students. In this issue of Communiqué we’re pleased to share snapshots of the rich variety our innovative professors, programs and students bring to the comprehensive collegiate experience.
You’ll read about a service-learning project in Haiti and how it has spawned a fresh look at embedding service in our academics. You’ll also see how teaching “applied innovation” earned a Fulbright Scholarship, and how impressing teens with cyberforensics builds early paths to high-tech education.
Pathways and partnerships are pivotal to the college’s success. That focus has brought to fruition our new 24,000-square-foot facility opening this fall on the Flagler/Palm Coast Campus. This spring, it has led us to conduct two explorations into regional business and community needs. Read The Insider View to find out how our Foundation has reached across Volusia and Flagler counties to identify top areas for college advancement. And in the next issue, we’ll have results from our Workforce Summit with nearly 100 business and civic leaders.
As we move into fall with a 2014/15 balanced budget, approved by our District Board of Trustees with no tuition hikes, our mission remains clear: service to students and community.
Please enjoy our summer issue of Communiqué.
