Welcome from Dr. Tonjua Williams, SPC President

At St. Petersburg College, we are committed to serving our students and our communities by offering academic degrees, certificates and certifications that are aligned with workforce demands. This ensures our students and graduates are career ready and well equipped to meet the needs of local employers.

That mission includes the creation of Advisory Committees comprised of SPC faculty and staff, employers, professional groups, governmental agencies, alumni, students and others who work together to make sure our programs are relevant to today’s ever-evolving employment needs.

SPC’s Advisory Committee members – representing more than 308 companies – analyze occupational needs and trends, inform program and certification offerings, and often provide internships and job opportunities.

I want to welcome you to our Advisory Committee community, which is dedicated to ensuring that SPC’s curriculum, training and program offerings create a pipeline of skilled employees ready to fill critical positions in our local workforce. Your work is vitally important to our students, our communities and the economic health of our entire region. Thank you for your service.

Your experience is invaluable

"What I love most about being involved with human services advisory board is that the group really embraces the dynamic nature of the “skilled helper” profession. Each meeting, I learn more about the diverse ways we teach students and help them be better at their craft."
