A Message from Falecia Williams, President, West and Downtown Campuses
The partnership between Valencia College and the University of Central Florida (UCF) continues with a new joint orientation program.
The goal of conducting joint orientations is to design a seamless student experience for all Downtown students, according to Edna Jones Miller, dean of students at the Downtown Campus. However, students may attend Valencia-only orientations if they choose. Valencia information shared is the same in both session types.
Edna said the joint orientation sessions help set the tone for the overall culture of collaboration and innovation at the campus. The first joint orientation session with UCF was held on Friday, November 22, 2019.
“UCF and Valencia College have a strong partnership in which we are working together to strengthen student support through combined efforts at orientation,” Edna said. “And the Downtown Campus is a breeding ground for innovation. With a passionate and strategic focus, we will continue to develop and implement a positive and innovative student experience for years to come. Joint orientations are just the beginning.”
