As a state college, we will further enhance our reputation and image as an institution of higher education that promotes and develops all students intellectually, socially and culturally, propelling them to succeed within the global community.
In 1947, Pensacola State College became the first public junior college to be established under new Florida law. As the college grew, recognition and support from the community also grew, and the Pensacola State College Foundation was incorporated in 1965 as a non-profit corporation that could accept tax-deductible contributions from community supporters.
During the next three decades, the Pensacola State College Foundation helped the college expand its campus, through the addition of many new buildings, as well as additional campus locations.
Donations from alumni and friends of Pensacola State College make the difference – making dreams a reality for many students.
