In 2001, the Florida Legislature established procedures to further expand access to baccalaureate degree programs through the use of community colleges. As stated in Section 240.3836, Florida Statutes:

A community college may be authorized by the Florida Board of Education to offer a limited number of baccalaureate degrees designed to meet local workforce needs through one of the following processes:

  • A community college may develop a proposal to deliver specified baccalaureate degree programs in its district.



  • Chipola jumped at this opportunity to serve its constituents

  • Conducted degree needs assessments.

  • Applied for permission to offer BS degrees in Secondary Math and Science Education, Business Administration, and Nursing

  • Florida Education Commissioner Jim Horne and then FSU President Sandy D‘Alemberte forged a partnership with Chipola for FSU to deliver the Business and Nursing degrees at Chipola. (Unfortunately, FSU withdrew from the partnership a year and a half later.)

  • Chipola was authorized to offer BS degrees in Math Education & Science Education.

  • Small enrollments and graduating classes

    • 13.8 - Average number of Math Ed. graduates per institution per year.

    • 11.6 - Average number of Science Ed graduates per institution per year.

    • 147 math ed grads/2306 math job openings.

    • 120 science ed grads/1938 science job openings.
