Will Dunne
Will Dunne, Daytona State College’s dean of health, wellness and intercollegiate athletics, has been inducted into the Florida College System Activities Association Hall of Fame. A 23-year veteran of Daytona State, as well as an alumnus, Dunne throughout the years has consistently guided the college’s varsity sports programs toward high athletic and academic achievement, including several “Academic Team of the Year” awards.
The FCSAA Hall of Fame is comprised of administrators, coaches, advisors, officials, student-athletes and other nominees who have contributed a minimum of 10 years to FCSAA or one of its member institutions. Inductees are selected by their FCSAA peers.
The college Planning Council  is seeking ways that will help Daytona State College conduct its daily business more efficiently. The council’s Operational Effectiveness and Accountability Committee this week emailed a survey to all college faculty and staff, seeking input on areas where costs savings can be had, where energy usage can be reduced and where services might be enhanced through the use of volunteers. Faculty and staff are asked to provide their ideas and suggestions and complete the survey by Nov. 30. The survey results will be considered as Planning Council proposals are developed in preparation for the next budget year.
