Valencia’s newest campus, the Poinciana Campus, opened in August 2017 with more than 1,100 students. The campus is led by an executive dean who reports directly to the campus president. The majority of students at the Poinciana Campus are Hispanic, and nearly one-quarter are black, reflecting the demographics of the Poinciana community. Before the addition of the new campus, students in the Poinciana community had amongst the lowest college-going rates in the state of Florida; the Poinciana Campus provides much-needed access to higher education.
The campus is home to a 67,000-square-foot comprehensive, academic building. In addition to the coursework necessary for an Associate in Arts, students are also able to complete Associate in Science degrees in business administration, computer information technology, criminal justice, culinary arts and hospitality management. Furthermore, the campus is home to a Center for Accelerated Training that offers short-term career training programs as well as English-language programs. Valencia is seeking a leader who is passionately committed to creating access to educational opportunities to all communities, including those who historically have been underserved.
