FTC 2020 Year in Review

The year 2020 presented unexpected challenges, but our FTC community did their best to rise to the occasion to go above and beyond. The commitment by our students to pursue and meet their academic goals, amidst the pandemic and while caring for loved ones was inspiring. To see our students, staff, and faculty use their skills and knowledge to help the community when it needed it the most, was heroic. Let’s take a moment to recognize and appreciate all of the accomplishments that took place this year:

  • 11 out of 15 Career Services Professionals and 4 students graduated with their Global Career Development Facility (GCDF) certification
  • Created a Healthcare Heroes Scholarship amidst COVID-19 to offer a new incentive for students considering a career in the field of Healthcare
  • Partnered with META Teletherapy for Remote Mental Health Counseling Services amidst COVID-19
