st petersburg college
  • SPC is the oldest 2-year college in Florida: 80 years
  • Comprehensive Community College mission
  • Fall enrollment: 26,165
  • Annual enrollment: 61,930
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Technology Management
  • BSN Nursing
  • Teacher Education
    • Elementary Education
    • Exceptional Education
    • Secondary Mathematics
    • Secondary Science
