Daytona State College, Deltona
The fast-growing I-4 corridor between Orlando and Daytona is among many primary drivers influencing growth in the Deltona region. As the recognized leader in the region for providing educational opportunities in trades, nursing and STEM, Daytona State College embarked on a master planning process aimed at building an achievable path for growth. Under Prosser’s leadership a master plan was devised that respected the topography (over 40’ of relief on the property), environmentally sensitive lands (scrub habitat) and the community while creating a methodology for growth that is a beacon for the community.
Our approach was to create an integrated and “front-facing” campus that responded to community and business needs of the region. A measured approach to growth that was consensus-built with the Board of Trustees that accounted for flexibility in academic offerings, technological changes in delivery methods of instruction and allowed for a walkable open campus to all. Our plan was approved by the Board in 2019 and construction of the first building identified in our plan is scheduled to commence in 2021. Our 5-year plan calls for a new classroom building focused on nursing and STEM education, student collaboration center and a recreation complex. These are currently in the pipeline with the nursing and STEM building in design. We recently finished a revised environmental permitting process to maintain the Scrub Jay population (an endangered species) while facilitating the long-term vision of the campus master plan.
