NORTH FLORIDA COMMUNITY COLLEGE RANKS SECOND BEST IN NATION

Tallahassee, Fla., August 26, 2013 – Today Washington Monthly ranked North Florida Community College (NFCC) second among national community colleges in its ninth annual college rankings survey. Four other Florida College System (FCS) institutions made the list: Chipola College, Miami Dade College, Valencia College and South Florida State College.

“North Florida Community College is honored to be among the top community colleges in the nation,” said NFCC President John Grosskopf. “Our strong commitment to educating students from all walks of life is reflected in these rankings. I could not be more proud of our college and its dedicated faculty and staff."

“This honor recognizes the Florida College System’s commitment to both access and high-quality education,” said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. “I commend our colleges for their ongoing efforts to serve the needs of our state.”

Using data from the Community College Survey of Student Engagement and U.S. Department of Education, Washington Monthly rates community colleges in a number of areas, including collaborative learning, student effort, academic rigor, student-faculty interaction and support for learning. Retention, graduation and completion rates are also factored into the rankings.

According to Washington Monthly’s editors, “We designed the Washington Monthly college rankings to embody the American higher education compact at the institutional level. Instead of lauding colleges for closing their doors to all but an elite few, we give high marks to institutions that enroll low-income students, help them graduate and don’t charge them an arm and a leg to attend.”

“These rankings are especially important because they highlight the system’s mission of providing access to low-cost, high-quality education and job training,” said Chancellor Hanna. “I am extremely proud of all of our colleges for helping prepare Floridians for high-skill, high-wage jobs.”
