What Happened to the Community Colleges in Palm Beach?

Image Courtesy of CollegeDegrees360 (Flickr 7658311866)In 2009, the Community College system in the State of Florida became a system of State Colleges. While their primary mission remains the awarding of associate’s degrees that provide access to a university education, their mandate was expanded. Today, Florida’s State Colleges also provide Enterprise Florida-related programs [Enterprise Florida is a public-private partnership to expand and diversify the state’s economy through job creation] and serve as economic development centers, a source of workforce literacy programs, dual enrollment courses, adult education programs, and awarding of baccalaureate degrees in some areas of study. The system also continues to provide outreach to underserved communities as well as remedial education and equivalency programs.

Palm Beach State College serves Palm Beach County in this capacity. See the Public Colleges and Universities, for information.
