President's Letter

If you have walked across our beautiful and historic campus recently you will have noticed how Flagler College is transforming in new and exciting ways.

New facilities have opened. Student services and activities have expanded. Everything from the architecture to our gorgeous grounds and greenspaces have been spruced up.

The past two academic years have been marked by one of the most ambitious undertakings in the history of our college. We called it the Five Star Plan – a comprehensive improvement project that is unparalleled in its cost, size and scope. Through it, we are implementing dynamic new offerings in facilities, academics, technology, the student experience and numerous other campus enhancements.

Flagler is moving forward in exciting ways as we seek to achieve greatness in everything we do.

In this issue you will read about some of the many additions and improvements we’re making, like the recent purchase of our newest dorm, Sebastian House. We have also restructured our General Education program, launched an Innovation Center and begun a Classical Institute that will further strengthen our liberal arts focus.

We are investing millions of dollars to modernize and transform Flagler College so that it is prepared to carry-on our critical mission for the next 100 years or more. Our goal is simple: Deliver excellence in all facets of the College experience. Already we’re recognized as a top school, as we once again were ranked number 2 in U.S. News and World Report’s Best Regional Colleges in the South. But we know there is more to be done.

As a supporter of the College, you can be proud of the hard work all of our faculty, staff and Trustees are doing. You should also know that we couldn’t have done this without you. That is why we continue breaking fundraising records, have brought in the largest number of new students in our history and are providing the best educational experience for our students. Our new Five Star Plan will ensure this continues, as well as set Flagler up for even greater success in the future.
