Dr. Williams will be presenting on the innovative partnership between Valencia College and the University of Central Florida as they launch the Downtown Campus in 2019.

Campus President, West and Downtown Campuses
Falecia D. Williams currently serves as the West Campus President for Valencia College in Orlando, Florida, one of the nation’s largest and most celebrated community colleges. Valencia is widely known for its academic excellence, deep faculty engagement, high rates of graduation, exceptional job placement rates, and outstanding partnerships within the community and business industry. As a result, the college was selected by the Aspen Institutes as the inaugural winner of the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence in 2011.
Dr. Williams was recently tapped to lead Valencia’s collaborative efforts with the University of Central Florida to garner state approval for a new campus in Downtown Orlando, and she will add the newly approved campus to her portfolio of responsibilities. Her primary role is to lead the development and implementation of a unique, compelling campus vision that portends a defined emphasis on significant and measurable improvements in the quality and impact of the campus’s educational programs and services. Under her leadership, the Downtown Campus will focus on access, impact and innovation for the purpose of advancing the college’s mission and strengthening engagement with students and the community.
Dr. Williams has an extensive career in education. During her tenure at Valencia, she served as a professor, Program Director for Dual Enrollment, Director of College Transition Programs, Dean of Workforce Programs, Assistant Vice President for Workforce Development and Academic Affairs, and Interim Provost for West Campus. Her responsibilities included coordinating pre-collegiate partnerships with public secondary schools, managing academic credit accelerated mechanisms, and oversight for career and technical education, economic development, and workforce training.
Prior to Valencia, Dr. Williams was a secondary teacher in gifted and honors education, coach, and grant administrator in the Lake County Public School system for eight years and taught one year in the Orange County Public School system. She led significant efforts to close the performance gaps for students, increase community outreach, strengthen parental support, and broaden professional development opportunities for teachers.
Dr. Williams earned her Bachelor of Arts at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL, Master of Arts at Stetson University in Deland, FL, and Doctor of Education at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL. She is the recipient of numerous honors and distinctions, and is currently an Aspen Presidential Fellow for Community College Excellence.
Dr. Williams is married to retired Lieutenant Alfred E. Williams, and they are the proud parents of Adonis V. Williams and Cameron A. Williams.
