FSCJ Honors, Awards and Achievements for 2013-2014 School Year

As the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year is upon us, it’s a great time to reflect on some of the faculty and academic recognitions that Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) received for the 2013-2014 school year.

FSCJ is built on a foundation of educational excellence and is comprised of the most motivating, intellectual and inspiring faculty that mold our students into talented, desirable candidates for employment and higher-education opportunities.

Florida State College at Jacksonville continues to enhance its programs, certificates and degrees, both academic and recreational, to offer the most relevant and advanced programs to students. The continual growth and success of the College would not be possible without the contributions of our faculty and staff.

See below for a list of some of the honors and recognitions awarded for the 2013-2014 school year. This is not a comprehensive list of all awards, honors and recognitions for 2013-2014.
