Geography Instruction in Florida's Community Colleges


  • Morton D. Winsberg


Community colleges, sometimes still called junior colleges in Florida, are important components of the State of Florida's higher educational program. Actually the combined enrollment of these 28 colleges is approximately 85% of the total head count of students in the state supported institutions of higher education. Except for a few individuals who have been active for many years in the Florida Society of Geographers, those who teach geography in these community colleges remain anonymous to the membership, and undoubtedly most are unaware of the Society. The majority who teach geography in community colleges majored in other subjects, and some perhaps have never had a course in our discipline.
