2 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

3 BACKGROUND 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

4 STATE AND FEDERAL RESPONSE CCS strategic plan on Baccalaureate access solutions: branches; partnerships; distance learning; community colleges directly (Florida 47 th, Pinellas 67 th 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

5 STATE AND FEDERAL RESPONSE 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)

6 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

7 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
