College Relations & Special Events
Flagler College’s Office of College Relations is the institution’s link to the community. We work to connect the talents of our faculty, staff, and students with the needs of our city and county. In addition, we provide opportunities for the residents and businesses of Northeast Florida to access the wide range of facilities—both historic and new—that make up our stunning campus.
What We Do
The Office of College Relations is responsible for all College facility scheduling, including the coordination of our most versatile and in-demand spaces: Ponce de Leon Hall, Lewis Auditorium, Markland House, the Ringhaver Student Center, and the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum.
Our office provides planning and consultation for events ranging from summer camps to academic conferences and seminars.
We also coordinate:
- All community relations and opportunities for the College to engage with the city, the county, and the region.
- College cultural events, including the Flagler Forum and the Community Lecture Series.
- College fundraising events, including the legendary New Year’s Eve Ball and the beloved President’s Golf Classic.
- All institutional anniversaries and celebrations.
