Flagler College

Flagler College Founded in 1968, Flagler College aims to provide a supportive and challenging environment in which students acquire knowledge, exercise good citizenship, and adhere to high ethical standards.
Founded in 1968, Flagler College has experienced 42 years of providing a rich liberal arts education in a small, supportive environment. Its heritage, however, extends back more than a century. The school’s historic campus resides just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of St. Augustine, Fla., the oldest city in the United States. The college is named after Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and oil magnate. In 1888, he built the luxury resort Hotel Ponce de Leon, which now serves as a residence hall and centerpiece for the college. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, Ponce de Leon Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The grand hotel launched the careers of famous architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings. Thomas Edison personally helped make Ponce the first building in Florida wired with electricity, and Louis Comfort Tiffany decorated the building’s interior with stained glass, mosaics and several commissioned murals. The hotel was sold to Flagler College when the institution was founded in 1968. Since then, the college has spent more than $43 million dollars restoring the historic campus and adding new buildings. One of the latest additions to campus is a multimillion-dollar Student Center on Sevilla Street. The college has also developed a 19-acre athletic field just two miles from campus. Lawrence Lewis, Jr., Henry Flagler’s principal heir, was the driving force behind the development of Flagler College. The philanthropist envisioned a small, private liberal arts college on the grounds of the magnificent old hotel. The school opened as a women’s college, and it was reorganized as coeducational in 1971. Lewis served as chairman of the Board of Trustees of Flagler College during these formative years, from 1968 to 1988. The college has grown with time, but it maintains a commitment to high educational standards within a close-knit community.

This Spring semester was unique. But then again, so is our Class of 2020. No matter what obstacle was put in their way, the Class of 2020 fought to continue in their journey here at Flagler College with elegance. Our faculty members wanted to leave our seniors with a few words of encouragement, and a final goodbye - because these amazing students have taught us perhaps the most important lesson of all: expect the unexpected.

A Message to Campus from Dr. Joyner

Message From Our President:

Dear Flagler Family,

I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation. The kindness and cooperation we have experienced, has reinforced my already strong feeling in our community.

I also want to say a special thank you to the entire team at Flagler College. They have demonstrated an unselfish spirit as we navigate through literally dozens of decisions to ensure the continuity of the College. At all times, the focus has been on the well-being and safety of our students, faculty, and staff.

As many of you know, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has mandated all state colleges and universities deliver instruction remotely for the balance of the semester, and to postpone May commencement ceremonies. While private schools are not named in the mandate, it is the understanding and expectation that private colleges and universities cooperate. Flagler College certainly will do its part to slow the speed of the virus and implement with fidelity all state and federal guidance, including that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Therefore, we have had to make the following decisions:

- We will continue to provide online delivery of spring classes for the remainder of the semester beginning Monday, March 23.

- We are going to keep our residence halls open to you should you need it, but we do encourage you to go home if you can.

- We have had to cancel all college events through the end of May and postpone our spring commencement to Saturday, December 12.

We are all in this together. Stay safe and healthy, and be sure to check our website: www.flagler.edu/coronavirus as more details become available.

Sincerely,

Dr. Flagler College President Joseph G. Joyner
