Letter from President Kerr

Dear College Community:

Since our founding in 1883, the history of Florida Southern College has been filled with periods of great challenge, including building a new campus after burning to the ground in 1922; recovering from flu epidemics and other diseases; surviving war conditions with limited supplies and financial resources; roaring back in the aftermath of hurricanes and tornadoes; and making steady progress in the wake of periods of distressing conditions of many types.

Florida Southern College has proven throughout the decades that it is resilient and is unwavering in its commitment to educational excellence and delivery of a world-class living/learning experience for students.

The FSC community has worked diligently to create a fall semester opening plan that is designed to keep students, faculty, and staff as safe as possible. In the pages that follow, you will discover a comprehensive plan that requires the participation of every individual in our community.

All students, staff members, and professors have roles and sets of guidelines to follow to help protect themselves and each other. This partnership is essential as we begin fall semester.

Because global and local conditions may change, this plan may also be revised, and subsequent alterations will be shared accordingly. Please visit this website and follow the College on social media for news and updates. For any questions, please email

This semester will be different from any other time in our history. However, our commitment to provide students with world-class educations and superb student life experiences that perpetuate our enviable community pride will continue. Indeed, we will persevere in our quest to achieve the College’s mission of preparing our students to make positive and consequential impacts on society through excellent educational programs even in these uncertain times.

I send my best wishes for health and safety to you and your families and look forward to seeing you on campus very soon.


Anne B. Kerr
