Graduate from the Pensacola State College



Pensacola State College, serving Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and surrounding Alabama communities, was established as Florida’s first public State college by the state legislature in 1947. Classes were first offered in 1948 to 136 students; Pensacola State College now serves more than 22,000 students annually.

The development of the Pensacola State College Strategic Plan included the creation of a new vision statement, mission statement, and the establishment of a process for planning that includes overall institutional goals and objectives assigned to the appropriate functional units and administrative offices of the College.

By participating in customer satisfaction surveys and an in-depth S.W.O.T. analysis, thousands of the College’s stakeholders, both on campus and in the community, played a direct role in the development of this plan. The Strategic Planning Committee was made up of a broad cross section of institutional representation, including student, instructional and business affairs personnel. Through a series of retreats, the District Board of Trustees and college administrators provided guidance and wise counsel.
