Linking Public Higher Education: Valencia Community College and the University of Central Florida: A White Paper.
Gross, Edmund K.
In September of 1986, a joint articulation conference was held between the Open Campus of Valencia Community College (VCC) and the University of Central Florida (UCF). The conference brought together administrators, faculty, and staff from the two colleges to review current areas of cooperation, examine common concerns, and explore new opportunities for cooperation. Future cooperative endeavors were recommended for the areas of: (1) academic affairs (e.g., implementation of faculty exchanges, development of a transfer manual, and sharing of facilities and equipment); (2) student affairs (e.g., improved evaluation of transcripts, meetings of student affairs representatives of the two institutions, and better coordination of academic calenders); (3) business affairs (e.g., regular meetings of purchasing agents of both institutions, study of the feasibility of making joint purchases of supplies and equipment, and sharing of computer software); and (4) planning, development and external affairs (e.g., joint presentations to appropriate legislative delegations, collaboration in private fund-raising activities, and sharing of state reports on enrollment and degrees conferred).
