Edward Waters College (EWC) is positioned to serve the evolving needs of the students, region, and the state of Florida in the coming decades. As a part of this commitment to academic growth within the region and globally, the Office of Distance Learning serves as a hub to increase the digital footprint of the College. Fostering cross-disciplinary research, partnerships, global leadership, and innovation within the academic enterprise, the Office of Distance Learning will strategically position EWC to offer an online student support option that will facilitate best-in-class experiences within the academic and related student service offices. Further, the virtual ecosystem will allow students to network beyond the local community through national and international teambuilding that will occur through a diversified body of scholars opting to enroll at the institution beyond the Jacksonville locale. Such an opportunity will drive the global initiatives of the institution and expand the academic profile as related to the College’s mission and strategic goals.
