The District Board of Trustees of Santa Fe College, Florida
Santa Fe College was established by the state government in 1965 to offer wide access to higher education and serve the educational, social, cultural and economic interests of its Alachua-Bradford County service district and the State of Florida. Florida's legislature, governor and Department of Education were responding to a request from the Alachua and Bradford County Boards of Public Instruction, which had canvassed the area and learned that it would be well served if all citizens had the opportunity for an education and better life.
The District Board of Trustees of Santa Fe College was empowered shortly after the founding of the college. The belief of Florida's legislature was, and still is, that local governance by a citizen board is the best means to ensure that the college is effective and responsive in its service district and the state.
Board members are appointed by Florida's governor based upon their distinguished records of community involvement. Successive boards carried out the college's philosophy of student-centeredness and community support, leading to Santa Fe's prominence in the American Association of Community Colleges, The League for Innovation in the Community College, and other leading education organizations.
