FSCJ's Culinary Arts and Hospitality program recently completed an articulation agreement with the Clara White Mission, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent and reduce homelessness through advocacy, housing, job training and employment.
The agreement will allow students who complete the Commercial Foods I Workforce Certificate (W.C.) through the Clara White Mission to also earn up to 12 credit hours to apply toward their Culinary Management Associate in Science (A.S.) degree.
"The Clara White Mission has been a valued resource in this community for many years, much like FSCJ, and our program's move to this area helped solidify our role in supporting their students in this way," said Instructional Program Manager Bob Mark. "This agreement will provide these students with a significant head start to earning their degree which may have never been a realistic option for them otherwise."
The Culinary Arts and Hospitality program recently moved to Downtown Campus to accommodate an expansion which increases relationship cultivation with area schools, organizations and service industry employers to provide enhanced career exploration and hands-on educational opportunities. The all-new space also just won the International Interior Design Association-North Florida Chapter Interior Design Awards in the education/institution category.
