A Special Message from Dr. Sandy Shugart, Valencia College President
Over the past week, you may have seen media coverage regarding Valencia’s sonography program.
First, let me assure you that the program has been mischaracterized in media reports and on social media. At Valencia, we place great value on our reputation in the community and in the nation. But what we value most is our relationship with our students, faculty and staff.
As you know, students — and their welfare — are our primary concern at Valencia, and we respond any time a serious concern is brought to our attention.
Because of that, I want to share with you a statement that I have provided to the Orlando Sentinel. You will likely see more news stories about Valencia in the coming days. I encourage you to share the facts that I’ve included in my statement, to ensure that the proper information is communicated.
