This is the third in our series of Thought Leader interviews. This special series of interviews is designed to help prepare college leaders for a future visioning activity taking place in Summer 2021. We are adding all of these interviews where the participants have allowed it for our entire College community to hear.

In this episode, Sandy Shugart, President of Valencia College, shares his thoughts on the future of community college. Sandy spoke as both a member of our community college extended community as well as as a person nearing the end of his career which I believe lent a unique perspective.
