Business and industry partnership support is essential to SF’s career and technical education programs. Collaboration with local partners helps SF provide students with a high quality education that leads to jobs aligned with the dynamic growth of business in Florida.
These partnerships help the college educate and prepare the workforce to meet the high demands of employers for highly skilled, highly trained employees.
Among the many kinds of support SF receives from its community partners are professional advice, financial support, internships in clinical settings, employment and assistance with the law and regulation.
Santa Fe College clinical internships provide students with practical, hands-on experience in workplace laboratory settings. In these settings, students learn to integrate theory and instructional knowledge into real-world practice.
One of Santa Fe’s best partners is the University of Florida. The university annually accepts nearly 70 percent of SF associate degree graduates who apply to transfer to the UF.
