Associate Degree Statistics
According to Dr. James Henningsen, SCC has finally made the Community College Week Top 100 Associate's Degree Producers List. We were 84th largest producer of Associate Degrees (1,047) in the country. We were also the 50th largest producer of Associate Degrees in Arts and Sciences (AA) (743) in the country. Also, our college credit enrollment continues to increase in the double digits.
Seminole and Daytona Beach Community Colleges were successful in obtaining a $1.4 million award for the renewal of iTEC. This is a major milestone and represents a great collaboration between DBCC and SCC aimed at training technology teachers and students.

Council of Presidents Meeting - July 24
We are beginning to prepare for the next Legislative Session. The Council of Presidents will be meeting with the chairs of each Board on July 24 in Orlando.
Fall Welcome Back - August 20
It seems impossible, but the start of classes is just around the corner. If you would like to come and join in the "start up" celebration, please join us on August 20 in the Fine Arts Theatre at 8:00 for breakfast, followed by the 8:30-10:00 a.m. program. We are in the process of hiring approximately 25 new faculty members who will be present that day. Since you probably won't get to spend time with each of them, I am working with Dean Annye Refoe to have them attend the Board's monthly dinner on October 21. By that time, they should have plenty to share with you about life at SCC. It is part of our efforts to continue the close culture of which SCC is so very proud!
Special congratulations and kudos to the entire STP team, which successfully launched both the financial and HR modules on schedule early this month. June and July payroll data are currently being entered into the new PeopleSoft system. All new FY 03/04 purchase orders are being created in PeopleSoft. To maintain the integrity of the system, only those employees who have attended training will be allowed to access their respective PeopleSoft data. The Student Administration team is busy in three weeks of testing and will begin schedule-building in PeopleSoft in late August. As a result of testing and training, several Student Success Services directors will be unavailable during Fall registration. Employees from other areas are volunteering and being trained to be available on the Student Success Services floor during peak registration periods. It's wonderful to see all the cross-functional collaboration and support that is taking place to enable this project to be successful. It is truly a collegewide effort.
