  • West Library team accepts AFC award

    As recipients of an Association of Florida Colleges’ (AFC) Learning Resources Commission Exemplary Practice Award, Nardia Cumberbatch, Jeannie Rodriguez and Regina Seguin were invited to speak at the AFC Annual Conference on November 8.

    The library team won the award this summer for The Human LibraryTM, which they developed in partnership with The Human LibraryTM organization. The program allows library users to “check out” human “Books” for 20-30 minutes of conversation about the Books’ experiences with stigma and marginalization.

    Their presentation described how the program aligned with Valencia’s strategic goals and student learning outcomes and provided best practices for hosting similar events.
