But it's our quality of education, not size, that truly makes us great. Our Honors program is viewed by the National Collegiate and Southern Regional Honors Council as one of the exemplary programs in the nation. The Orlando Sentinel dubbed our fine-arts faculty one of the best in the region, and director Steven Spielberg called our film program one of the best anywhere. But the opinions that matter most are those of our students, and 92% say we met or exceeded their expectations on overall quality of education.

We strive to ensure that equal access to higher education belongs to everyone, because the future does, too.

We stand in the gap between what is and what can be. We pave a path to true potential. Whether it’s helping students land a dream job or continue on to the university of their Dreams, we do everything in our power to make that possible for each and every one of our students.

Recognized as one of “The Great Colleges to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education, we understand the importance of fostering a collaborative environment that encourages teamwork, creativity and the achievement of a true work/life balance.

At Valencia College, it’s more than just a job. We’re committed to helping our students reach their full potential by providing them with the right opportunities, the right tools and the right support. And that begins with recruiting the right talent.

We seek leaders. Inspirers. Motivators. Educational enthusiasts, passionate optimists and experienced realists. Individuals who not only believe in our students, but will help our students believe in themselves.
