Women of Style 2018: Rebecca Jones

Rebecca Jones

President, Taylor College

5190 SE 25st Street, Belleview › (352) 245-4119 › taylorcollege.edu

Rebecca Jones feels so strongly about Taylor College and its positive impacts on the community that she came out of retirement to serve as the institution’s president. 

“We present a small, family-like environment,” she says. “Faculty and staff are genuinely interested in helping students succeed.”

After serving in the Army for 23 years and as an academic administrator and college president prior to Taylor College, Rebecca knows what it takes to run a successful college.

“Quality is an important trademark,” she says. “We are striving to achieve a new, national accreditation with the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools. This will give us the opportunity to offer associates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as diploma-level certificates.”

The college is also actively pursuing specialty accreditation for the nursing programs and the physical therapy assistant program.

“My vision for Taylor College is to work with our staff to bring quality to all aspects of Taylor College, from policies and procedures, to curriculum and outcomes.”
