  • 9. HECC Recommendations align with Board of Governors Strategic Plan (examples)7A All appropriate educational delivery sectors, working with the Florida Legislature, need to explore new methodologies for the provision of funding maintenance and construction of facilities. This should include exploring alternative funding solutions for the construction of University Educational Partnership Centers on state college campuses or use the state’s Higher Education Facilities Finance Authority rather than using PECO funding, to finance new buildings and seek community matching funds.11A All public and private postsecondary sectors should expand the use of instructional technology to help solve access and availability challenges. Colleges and universities should use already developed resources within Florida to offer expanded access through on-line programs and promote consortium programs that enable public and private institutions in a region to allow students to easily take courses at other institutions in the partnership.13A The Board of Governors and the State Board of Education, working with the Florida Legislature, need to examine a new State University System and Florida College System funding formula based in part on greater emphasis on performance-based accountability to enhance areas such as graduation and retention rates, STEM degree production and commercialization of research that leads to job creation.
