QEP – The Next Big Idea to Guide Our Work into the FutureMany of Valencia's current programs and innovative solutions began as commonly held ideas about the way students learn. So, in preparation for the development of Valencia's Quality Enhancement Plan - recognizing that the plan should evolve from existing work – we are focusing on the emerging ideas within the College to build the foundation for this work. Valencia's current Big Ideas have laid the groundwork for us to innovate, create and achieve our mission authentically. Through our discussions, considering what we already know about our students, and by connecting to the national conversation on student completion, it is our hope that these courses of action will produce the emergence of our next "big idea."
The Division of Academic Affairs and Planning includes the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Planning and six departments that report to the Vice President:
Our Student Affairs division has focused since the mid-1990’s on the design and implementation of systems that support students in the achievement of their career and educational goals. This work has been accomplished through the development of three major systems: LifeMap, Atlas, and Learning-Centered Student Services.
Valencia College provides a coordinated experience for all new students. The New Student Experience includes a required credit-earning course and provides an extended orientation to college, integrated student success skills, career and academic advising, which includes the development of an individualized education plan. We envision that the new student experience will result in curricular and co-curricular student engagement, leading to the successful completion of the first 15 college-level credits at Valencia. Wherever possible, the curricular aspects of the new student experience will be offered in partnership with faculty in academic and career programs.
