The Evolution of Workforce Baccalaureate Degrees in Florida
Bilsky, Judith; Neuhard, Ian; Locke, Mary G.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n158 p35-46 Sum 2012
The State of Florida has been challenged to keep up with the demand for baccalaureate degree production for more than half a century. Fueled first by veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict, and later by significant and sustained population growth over many decades, Florida's postsecondary infrastructure has struggled to keep pace with the growing number of residents and students seeking college degrees. This chapter highlights the history of workforce baccalaureate degrees in Florida, documents the growth of these programs across the state, and provides a framework for the designation of various degree types and academic requirements. Florida's new College System is described as one of the largest and most innovative systems of higher education for increasing access to four-year workforce baccalaureates. (Contains 2 tables.)
