Student Success, Our Success.

President walking with students

The Inauguration of Dr. Angela Garcia Falconetti offers us the opportunity to celebrate the success of Polk State College, its students, faculty, staff and alumni.  Of equal importance is the recognition of the vital role the College plays in the vibrancy of the community.  Polk State is priviledged to have seven locations countywide that serve more than 16,000 students annually through its 58 degree, certificate and program offerings.  We our exceptionally proud of our more than 45,000 graduates, approximately 70 percent of whom reside in our great county.

The word inauguration signifies a rite of passage marking a formal induction into office.  Collegiate presidential inaugurations originated in the United States in the 17th century to acknowledge a change in leadership.  Dr. Falconetti looks forward to sharing this special moment in Polk State’s history with you.  Most importantly to her, she is honored to share in the College’s commitment to student success which ultimately uplifts our entire community.
