New Valencia ID cards are being instituted collegewide to serve as official identification for faculty, staff, students, law enforcement and contractors. All employees are encouraged to obtain an ID badge. Students will be required to obtain an ID, and cards will also be issued to law enforcement and vendors who regularly work at the College.
All faculty and staff are urged to visit their respective campus security office to obtain their new ID cards. District Office and School of Public Safety employees can visit any campus security office to obtain their card. Campus Security phone numbers are available below if you need directions.
The process is quick and should take no longer than 10 minutes. A limited number of free lanyards are available. Get one while they last when you secure your new ID. Also, take advantage of one-stop shopping provided by Campus Security and secure your new parking permit while there (complete and bring your parking permit application available in Atlas). Act now before the rush.
“The access card is not just about security, but is like a passport of sorts to the Valencia community,” said Paul Rooney, assistant vice president, safety/security risk management.
For faculty and staff, ID cards will provide entry into buildings and be used to acquire library resources. Currently, some local merchants offer Valencia employee discounts.
The employee and student cards may have the potential in the future to function as a debit card, and a collegewide ID task force is looking at opportunities to use in campus bookstores and with campus food vendors.
