This fact book offers information on Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) (Florida) for fiscal year 2001-2002. SFCC had a total enrollment of 21,932 in 2001-02. Degrees and certificates awarded in that year totaled 2,593. The total faculty was 563, with 264 full-time and 299 adjunct instructors. The college has an annual operating budget of over $50 million, and has 65 buildings representing an investment of approximately $119 million. In 2001-02, 72.5% of the student population at Northwest Campus (which has 90.9% of SFCC FTE students) was white, 11.6% was African American, 7.9% was Hispanic, 4.8% was non-resident alien, 2.6% was Asian, and 0.7% was American Indian. More than 52% of students were female. SFCC aims to evaluate how well it prepares students to succeed in upper division work once they transfer to a four-year university. The state goal for transfer success demands that 70% of transferring community college students achieve a GPA of 2.5 or higher. The research contained in this document indicates that SFCC exceeds this goal with 73.24% of its transfer students earning a GPA of 2.5 or higher. At least 80% of vocational training program graduates are employed in the field in which they were trained, and 11.4% are continuing their education. More than 8% are not placed. Also includes information on retention, educational finance, faculty, and program completions. (NB)
