North Florida Community College ranked among nation’s “Top 50 Community Colleges”

North Florida Community College (NFCC), the smallest college in the Florida College System, has been named as one of America’s best community colleges in the Washington Monthly magazine’s 2010 College Rankings edition. Ranked at No. 31 among the nation’s “Top 50 Community Colleges,” NFCC posted high marks for providing its students with quality instruction, active and collaborative learning opportunities, support for learning, and outstanding student-faculty interaction.

“We are absolutely dedicated to our mission of providing high quality educational opportunities to the citizens of our district,” said NFCC President John Grosskopf. “We know we do our job extremely well and now the nation knows it as well.”

The Washington Monthly ranking is based on information found on 650 community colleges in the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) and graduation rates published by the U.S. Department of Education.

Grosskopf says that NFCC students enjoy smaller class sizes, personalized attention, and an abundance of resources that prepares them well to continue their education or to move into a career, and to turn their dreams and goals into a reality. The college’s recognition on the national level affirms that NFCC is a great educational resource as well as a leader in offering area students a quality education.
