Santa Fe College drops down a few notches in associate degree rankings
Santa Fe College has dropped in rankings on the number of associate degrees granted. A new Community College Week study shows the college dropped eight places in the most recent ranking of community colleges which produce the most associate degrees. Santa Fe Academic Affairs Vice President, Ed Bonahue, says the drop was attributed to higher unemployment in some areas and to the rise in enrollment seen at other colleges.
“What we did not have was the massive institutional growth that a lot of colleges, especially colleges in big metropolitan areas, have had since the economic downturn that started in 2008,” he said.
Miami-Dade College ranked the highest for Florida four-year colleges in second place with more than nine-thousand degrees awarded. Valencia Community College topped the list for two-year institutions with 6,300.
