JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – For the second year in a row, Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) was selected as one of the Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and “Diverse: Issues in Higher Education,” the nation’s only biweekly newsmagazine dedicated exclusively to diversity issues in higher education.
FSCJ was one of 24 colleges selected for the award in recognition of workplace diversity, staffing practices and work environment. Using a web-based survey approach, the selection committee examined categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits and professional development opportunities.
“At FSCJ, we are working hard to emphasize and enhance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in everything we do for our students, faculty, staff, and this community. To receive this national recognition once again is a great reflection of those efforts,” said College President John Avendano, Ph.D. “We know that a diverse team that takes pride in their work and feels valued, respected and supported in their role, while also being representative of the students we serve is critical to our student and institutional success.”
“Diverse: Issues In Higher Education” will present the recognition to each of the winners during the NISOD annual meeting, which will be held May 28-31, 2022, in Austin, Texas.
