The College strives to support our area s economic development by addressing local needs for workforce training and is proud of our responsiveness to the needs of the community. Our partnerships with local public school systems, regional public and private colleges and universities, and local business and industry are key to our success. As Governor Scott and the legislative leadership make critical decisions in the upcoming legislative session, we want to be viewed as a major resource in promoting economic growth by helping to meet pressing needs for a skilled and educated workforce. Please join our District Board of Trustees and me in advocating for support of needed facilities, a new construction program and keeping us at the cutting edge of online learning.

4 1TOP REQUESTS FOR THE 2015 LEGISLATIVE SESSION New Classroom/Student Service/Workforce- Transition Building What s needed: Remaining funding of $18.8 million in 2015 for construction and $3.6 million in 2016 for furniture and equipment to ensure student access to academic and workforce transition support. ISSUE: Daytona State College is positioned to respond to business and industry needs by preparing students for entry-level and mid-level high-demand jobs, yet success is limited for many students by academic challenges, lack of resources and the inability to transition successfully from school to work. BACKGROUND: Daytona State College is the largest postsecondary workforce training institution in Volusia and Flagler counties, with a core mission to prepare students for immediate careers in high-demand fields. Most DSC graduates stay in the area to work, raise families and contribute to the local economy. DSC has a demonstrated need for additional classroom space for new and expanded workforce programs and for career transition services for students. SOLUTION: A new Classroom/ Student Services/Workforce Transition Building on the Daytona Beach campus will serve as a hub for academic support and workforce transition services, and provide a modernized space for food services. Partial funding ($2.4 million in 2012 and $8 million in 2014) was received for the project, but the remainder -- $18.8 million in construction funding in 2015 and $3.6 million in furniture and equipment in is needed to ensure student access to programs, activities and food services. EFFECT: The new facility will allow DSC to complement students academic experiences with career development and jobseeking programs and services, increase student retention, success and completion rates, and provide students with rigorous, relevant curriculum while maintaining affordability. STRATEGY: The initial concept was to re-purpose and expand Building 220 into the Classroom/ Student Service/Workforce Transition Building. Further exploration and preliminary design studies indicate that it would be more economical and environmentally sound to demolish this facility and build new in another part of the campus. New construction will allow for a greater degree of educational functionality, as well as lower costs. BENEFIT: It will be more economically feasible to replace than remodel. Demolition and building in a new location also opens up the overall campus circulation and makes the building more accessible for students. The preferred location will have a greater community and street presence that will allow the building to become a focal point. A four-story structure will conserve space on the limited 100-acre campus as it consolidates instructional programs and academic support in close proximity to faculty offices and student support services. ECONOMIC IMPACT: In the shortterm, funding of the new facility will increase the college s ability to procure construction goods and services, creating an economic boost to the area. In the longterm, graduates of Daytona State College will have greater success in securing employment in highskilled, high-demand jobs, which will in turn lower unemployment and under-employment rates and increase the tax base due to higher earnings. OUTCOMES: This new facility and the programs and services it will house to support students will assist Daytona State College in increasing success and completion rates of students enrolled in workforce programs and demonstrate an increase in job placement rates and wages for its graduates.

5 2TOP REQUESTS FOR THE 2015 LEGISLATIVE SESSION Be #1 in the nation in for critical enhancements online learning $320,000 What s needed: Funding for online learning environment infrastructure enhancements, $190,000, as well as investment in faculty professional development in areas of instructional design and best practices in online student engagement, $130,000. ISSUE: Increased competition, student demand and new technologies require further investment in infrastructure and training in order for Daytona State College to maintain and advance its standing among colleges offering the nation s top online baccalaureate degree programs, as well as to realize best practices in college-wide online instruction. BACKGROUND: For three years running, Daytona State College has ranked in the Top 10 in the nation, this year coming in at No. 2, among hundreds of colleges and universities offering baccalaureate degree programs online, according to U.S. News & World Report. But the focus on excellence in online instructional delivery also extends to students seeking associate-level degrees, whose success is a primary focus of the state s new performance funding initiative. More than 11,000 Daytona State students took online courses in 2014, an increase of more than 375 percent since Clearly, the online learning environment has become an increasingly critical component of the DSC teaching and learning experience. SOLUTION: Engagement is key to student success and retention. In the online environment, the ability to effectively immerse and interact with students poses its own challenges and opportunities. As is the case in the traditional classroom, the goal is to create an experience that motivates students to stay enrolled and complete their degrees in a reasonable amount of time. Deploying technologyassisted enhancements into the online learning environment is essential to applying the best practices to this end. Examples under consideration with this request include 24/7 technical and academic support services, mobile device access to the learning management system, and expanded instructional assessment tools. Likewise, a formalized system of professional development for faculty working in the online environment will ensure the college has the resources to train instructors on how to teach distance learners. OUTCOMES: These strategic improvements in online delivery, learner support and faculty training will directly impact student graduation rates in our fast-growing online programs. With guidance and support, students will stay on track to complete their degrees on time and quickly find employment in high-demand fields. Ranked in Top Ten for best online bachelor s programs - 3 years running

6 3TOP REQUESTS FOR THE 2015 LEGISLATIVE SESSION Launch a Construction Trades certificate program - $500,000 What s needed: Funding for a new pathway program in construction trades to meet local workforce needs, $500,000 for start-up equipment and instruction. ISSUE: A significant skills gap in the construction trades is adversely affecting the economy in Volusia and Flagler counties. With large and important regional construction projects progressing and starting up in the postrecession era, related sectors of industry state a near-desperate need for trained workers. The mission of Daytona State College includes addressing workforce needs with timely programs to fill the gap and help fuel the economy. BACKGROUND: The gap between an organization s ability to hire the skills it requires limits its potential to grow or remain competitive. This situation worsens when it affects a full sector of the workforce like construction. Daytona State College determined that the economy of Volusia and Flagler has been affected by such a skills gap and set out to determine the skills needed to grow the economy. On May 28, 2014, the Daytona State College Board of Trustees hosted a Call to Action: Workforce Summit that drew 79 interested business and industry leaders from diverse companies to discuss the state of the workforce in Volusia and Flagler counties. Two major areas, manufacturing and construction, were identified as critical needs. Additionally, supply chain management was cited as a growing and future need with distribution centers like Trader Joe s continuing to look to the I-4 and I-95 connection as ideal for trucking. On August 12, 2014, a focus group with the local construction groups revealed and confirmed a critical shortage in all construction-related trades. Upon further review, the construction industry within Florida represents 5.3% of employment. Locally, employment in construction-related fields has increased by over 3,000 workers since last year, with continuing high demand. The economic value of commercial permits from 2013 to 2014 increased by $35 million. SOLUTION: Daytona State College proposes to gear-up construction programs to meet the needs of the local workforce, responding to the rapidly expanding construction industry which has launched prominent local projects like International Speedway Corp. s One Daytona and Daytona Rising, expected to create over 9,000 jobs, over $300 million in labor income and over $80 million in tax revenue, as well as several large hotel complexes and new industrial building along I-95. Currently, Daytona State offers electrical and plumbing apprenticeship programs and a Heating/Ventilation/Airconditioning (HVAC) program to support the construction industry. Specifically, Daytona State, in response to employer demand, proposes the creation of a construction-related career pathway by adding a comprehensive certificate construction program inclusive of core construction skills and an opportunity to transfer into an Associate of Science degree in Industrial Management and then a Bachelor s degree program. An appropriate facility at Daytona State s Advanced Technology College has been identified as needing minor renovations such as a dust collection system and electrical upgrades. Equipment would be the major cost to program development. The request for $500,000 is inclusive of these costs as well as instructor salary for one year until the enrollment will support the instructor. OUTCOMES: The new pathway program in construction trades could enroll up to 80 students a year in staggered sessions with day and night classes. Pathway partners include Volusia Building Industry Association, CareerSource Flagler Volusia, Inc., Flagler Home Builders Association and Women in Construction Local Chapter.
