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.
(176)

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.

Resident Artist and Theatre faculty member Elaina Wahl-Temple has personally handcrafted over 300 face masks to donate to the staff at Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital and Colorado Children’s Hospital.

Happy #FlaglerFriday! The St. Johns County Health Department has made a generous donation of 10,000 cotton masks to Flagler College. As we continue on in our plan to reopen campus this fall, we couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity to receive this gift during these trying times. We will be providing masks to those who are not able to obtain one themselves come this fall semester - and will be requiring the use of facial coverings for all faculty, staff and students on campus. This donation will allow us to provide further assistance to our Flagler family. Thank you so much, St. Johns County Health Department!

Flagler College releases Academic Affairs Fall Contingency Overview

A task force designed to prepare contingency plans for fall instruction in light of the ongoing pandemic has been working over the past month, and this past week the College approved the Academic Affairs Fall Contingency Overview.

Among other things, this approved plan holds to the standard academic calendar for the fall, which means the College will resume with face-to-face classes on campus on Aug. 26.

This plan will be the first of several communications in the coming weeks from this ongoing planning process. It is intended to provide a basic overview of contingency planning in order to begin to give you a sense of what we are preparing for.

Our aim in these plans is to preserve the integrity of the small classroom experience. Future communications will focus on a more detailed description of classroom use with suggestions for hybrid/hyflex instructional models, if needed, as well as scheduling and related adjustments necessary to accommodate proper distancing/health-and-safety measures.

Public Events and Tours delayed until after Sept. 1

As Flagler College continues to develop plans to bring students back for face-to-face classes on campus this fall, our primary focus is protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. As part of this plan, the College has elected to push back decisions on allowing outside event scheduling, non-essential visitors, historic tours and other members of the public on our campus until after Sept. 1, 2020.

Our Strategic Plan outlined a commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, not only in our core values but by placing resources towards developing an Office of Diversity and Inclusion under the guidance and leadership of our Vice President of Student Affairs and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Dr. Sandra Miles.

“I am incredibly proud of the foundation that has been set in the inaugural year of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Looking ahead, I’m excited to continue to integrate the work, leadership, and expertise of this office and team more fully into every aspect of how we do business at Flagler,” said Dr. Miles.

During the 2019-2020 academic year, they launched initiatives such as educational programming and microaggression and implicit bias training for students, faculty, and staff. The College is working on a campus-wide 5-10 year Diversity Strategy, but this fall, students, faculty, and staff can expect:

-Initiatives to train staff and faculty who want to be a resource for members of marginalized communities
-Identifying courses on domestic and global diversity
-Creating modules on diversity for our First-Year Seminar

As a new week begins, let us start it by saying what we should have clearly stated last week- We stand in solidarity with our black community and condemn racial injustice and police brutality. #BlackLivesMatter and our black students matter. We will be dedicating our channel to:

-Antiracist, mental health, and activism resources as well as fall plans developed by our Office of Diversity and Inclusion as part of the College's Strategic Plan
-Follow What's Up Wednesday with our Title IX coordinator and equity investigator, Jess Kobryn as she describes the campus's discrimination reporting
-Citizenship with Integrity in action
-Local Civil Rights History

This is only the beginning, and more work is needed, but we know our Flagler community is up for the challenge on this important human rights issue.

Earlier this week, we were made aware of a racist post by someone who intended on being on campus in the fall when we reopen for classes. This inappropriate activity was investigated and an action was taken that was congruent with our values, admission policies, and purview. Being allowed to attend Flagler College is a privilege. That privilege is not owed to those whose words and actions demonstrate that they are not in support of a respectful and inclusive community. Flagler College with leadership from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion remain steadfastly committed to promoting a culture of inclusion where individuals from all races, and particularly our black students at this critical moment in time, are able to thrive and be engaged as students, faculty, and staff.

Flagler College President Joseph G. Joyner

A Message from Our President to the Flagler Family.

To the Flagler Family,

I want to take a moment to recognize that the violence and injustice currently happening in our country right now is a very traumatic experience for many members of our Flagler Family. I don’t have the words to heal your pain but I can voice my support for you and acknowledge your grief. Please know that as your college president, I condemn any type of hatred or devaluing of human life.

To our students, we talk a lot about how Flagler students are going to make the world a better place, and I trust that you will. But know it won’t be easy and you will get frustrated. If you hold on to your beliefs and our shared values of respectful and inclusive community and citizenship with integrity, you will have the tools you need to make a difference.

If the news cycle this week has been overwhelming for you, please be sure to find ways to disconnect and take care of your mental and spiritual health. Your Flagler Family is here for you and I encourage you to ask for their support.

Regardless of how this week has felt for you, I encourage everyone to show a little bit of grace and compassion and do your best to provide a safe space for those who may feel vulnerable at this time.

Wishing you peace and safety,

President Joyner
