Collegewide Convocation Next Tuesday
Every SCC faculty and staff member is invited to SCC's annual Collegewide Convocation, which will be held next Tuesday, Oct. 7, in the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus' gymnasium. All SCC sites and offices will be closed that day until 12:30 p.m., so all employees can attend the Convocation. Due to the Faculty and Student Success Services Retreats, which commence at 1 p.m. for the duration of the afternoon, all SCC campuses and services will also be closed to students for the entire day and evening.
The agenda for Oct. 7 includes:
Endowed Teaching Chair Nominations
All SCC faculty and staff members are invited and encouraged to nominate any full-time faculty member for one of the prestigious SCC Foundation $5000 Endowed Teaching Chair Awards, which will be bestowed at the Spring 2009 graduation. Please take a few minutes to visit the nomination Web page (http://www.seminolestate.edu/foundation/endowedchair/nomination.php) to complete the nomination form and submit it electronically. You may nominate as many faculty as you choose. Nominations are due by the end of the day on Friday, October 24. All full-time teaching faculty, counselors and librarians are eligible for the award.
SCC Employee Online Survey
One of the amendments on the Nov. 4 ballot pertains to Florida's 28 community colleges. Amendment 8, if approved by Florida's voters, would give any community college the future ability to approach the voters in its service area with a proposal to approve a local sales tax increment for a five-year period. Such a future approval from local voters would give a community college additional local revenue that could be used either for college facilities (new or modernized classrooms, buildings, etc.) or for college operating expenses, such as expanded program offerings, additional faculty and more. Seminole Community College currently has no plans to seek such a local sales tax increment, and our Board of Trustees has not discussed doing so. In September, our Board did vote to generally support Amendment 8, believing this amendment has merit. These facts explain Amendment 8 and our Board's reasoning for supporting it. Please consider these facts carefully in arriving at your decision regarding Amendment 8.
