Valencia College Community Affairs serves as a liaison between the college and the Central Florida community. We work to create opportunities for connection between the college and the business community, and work on the college’s economic development initiatives with the Orlando Economic Partnership. We also develop and maintain relationships with the area’s non-profit organizations through events, partnerships, outreach, and civic initiatives.

Sponsoring and attending events is an essential part of our community affairs work. These events allow us to support important community initiatives, expand the depth and breadth of our external presence, and allow us to reach new audiences.

For tips and guidelines on attending community events, take a look at our
 community event toolkit.


 

We are all ambassadors of Valencia College and it’s a privilege to represent our organization in the community.
