St petersburg college l.jpg

  • SPC is the oldest 2-year college in Florida: 80 years

  • Comprehensive Community College mission

  • Fall enrollment: 26,165

  • Annual enrollment: 61,930

Background l.jpg

  • Unique needs of Pinellas County:

    • Employer needs identified for IT managers, teachers, BSN trained nurses

    • Pinellas 67 of 67 counties in Baccalaureate access

    • Geographic uniqueness: a peninsula with heavy traffic volume

    • Need for AS graduates to have a smooth AS to BAS transfer option

State and federal response l.jpg

  • CCS strategic plan on Baccalaureate access solutions: branches; partnerships; distance learning; community colleges directly (Florida 47th, Pinellas 67th among counties)

  • Two hundred AS programs statewide and only five AS to Bachelor’s articulation agreements

  • AS success lowered Bachelor access if no AS to BAS route

State and federal response5 l.jpg

  • Legislature chose to also support a few niche Bachelor’s directly in high need areas: IT (22,000), Nursing (critical), Teacher Education (162,000 shortage in ten years)

Spc challenge l.jpg

  • How to implement Bachelor’s and be true to historical Community College Mission of workforce, 2+2, remedial and University Partnership missions

  • How to expand the open-door and keep instruction as a top priority as niche bachelor degrees are added

  • How to serve our “community” with 4-year bachelor’s in high demand areas

Key to implementation l.jpg

  • Becoming 4-year across the College e.g. Institutional Effectiveness, faculty criteria, student services, library services

  • SPC’s challenge: become one College, one faculty, one Curriculum and Instruction Committee, etc.

  • Planning funds provided to develop a full upper division at SPC by the legislature; upper division to focus on teacher education, BSN nursing and AS to BAS articulation programs

Degree standards l.jpg

  • SUS academic policies for quality

  • Time to degree: 120 hours

  • Common pre-requisites

  • Specialized accreditation

  • Ability of graduates to transfer into state/private graduate programs

Finance formula l.jpg

  • State University per student-research plus upper division SPC fees

  • Fees less than SUS, more than fees in our 2-year programs. Special fees less than USF

  • Began at 20% less than SUS, and will widen each year (37% in total fees in Fall 2006)

  • CCS approach now at 85% of SUS upper division direct cost

  • $3,872 per FTE

Three areas of initial emphasis l.jpg

  • Technology Management

  • BSN Nursing
