Valencia College, also known as Valencia or VC, is a public state college in Orlando, Florida, United States. Valencia is the third-largest member institution of the Florida College System.

The college was founded in 1967 as "Valencia Junior College", taking the name "Valencia Community College" in 1971. In December 2010, Valencia's Board of Trustees voted to change the college's name to "Valencia College", as the academic scope of the school expanded to include bachelor's degrees.[3] Valencia has several campuses in Orlando with additional campuses in Kissimmee and Winter Park. More than 30,000 students enroll each year. Valencia is ranked first in the United States for the number of Associate's degrees awarded; it is first among two-year schools.[4]

Valencia was named the top community college in the United States in 2011 by The Aspen Institute. The Aspen Institute awarded Valencia the first annual Aspen Prize for College Excellence after a year-long effort to recognize extraordinary accomplishments in individual institutions of the nation’s 1,200 community colleges. The Aspen award was granted based on, "a rigorous, yearlong effort...to assemble and review an unprecedented collection of data on community colleges and the critical elements of student success: student learning, degree completion and transfer, equity and employment/earnings after college."[5]

Board of Trustees[edit]

The Valencia Foundation $68 million endowment is about 12 times the average community college endowment, which reflects the abnormally large commitment of local business, organizations, and individuals, including the foundation board of directors. People on the Board of Directors are as follows:

  • Trustee, "Jerry Buchanan" – Retired bank executive.
  • Trustee, "Lori Kifer Johnson" – Senior Vice President in the Orlando office of Edelman, the largest independent public relations firm in the world.
  • Trustee, "Fernando Perez" – Regional director of Biotronik Inc., a global manufacturer of cardiovascular medical devices.
  • Trustee, "Lucas Boyce" – Director of business development and legislative affairs for the Orlando Magic.

[6]

The seal of the college includes the coat of arms of Valencia, Spain, in the middle and the entire diamond design stems from it. However, the college is not named for the city in Spain, but rather for the Valencia oranges which are grown in central Florida (which is why the old-timers pronounce it [va-LEN-sha] as is proper for the citrus fruit).

The mascot of the college is the Matador.

Locations[edit]

Valencia College operates a total of five campuses and three sites in its service area, which encompasses Orange County and Osceola County.

In early 2013, several central Florida news agencies reported on a dispute between college president Dr. Sanford Shugart and the board of trustees regarding allegations of nepotism, manipulating the bidding process and abuse of power.[12][13] This resulted in Valencia Board Chairwoman Bertica Cabrera Morris losing her position in April of that year.[14]
