Distance Learning and Student Services Members Council

The Distance Learning and Student Services Members Council provides feedback and suggestions to improve services offered by the Florida Virtual Campus. The Distance Learning and Student Services Members Council has three standing committees dedicated to ensuring a statewide offering of high quality online courses that expands access and improves affordability for postsecondary students in Florida. 

To ensure each college and university has an opportunity to offer insight and input, the Members Council is comprised of two presidentially-appointed representatives from each institution.
