Best Practices in the Florida College System



The Chancellor’s Best Practice Awards offer an outstanding opportunity to promote exemplary initiatives to statewide and national audiences by sharing pioneering programs found in Florida College System institutions. The Division of Florida Colleges annually recognizes colleges in the Florida College System that have established innovative practices or have enhanced existing programs. 

Best Practices are defined as strategies, activities or approaches that have been shown through research and evaluation to be effective. The Florida College System, which is regarded as a model for the nation, recognizes programs that strive to be the most innovative in the system. Best Practices can be new or refined programs relevant to (but are not limited to) the following: academic affairs, student affairs, workforce education, business, economic development, technology, innovation and administration.
