Members Council on Distance Learning and Student Services

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