  Course Modifications: (course outlines are located at: http://www1.fccj.org/curriculum/ and may be used
 to insert in package so modifications can be applied. Please make sure all changes are shown on outlines.



  Course Inactivations:

Not applicable

4. Please describe how current and past students are affected by this change indicating how you plan to identify
   and resolve individual issues and how you plan to communicate these changes to affected students.

Current and past Biotechnology Laboratory Technology students should be unaffected. This new track is to create
opportunities for employment in the bioanalytical testing sector, a new employment field for North Florida to be created by
establishment of the FCCJ Institute for Food Safety, an academic and industry partnership.


5. Should this course be offered in distance learning or other unique instructional format (please specify which
   format)? Why or why not? For assistance, see website:
   http://www.distancelearning.org/Faculty/facresource.html

            No, while hybrid learning formats can be leveraged, this is a very hands-on laboratory-intensive curriculum
mandating a majority of laboratory hours. The classes are taught in a hybrid format with 3 hours laboratory work and 2
hours online.

                                                                                           Form 1, Page 4

6. Include appropriate background information. The following questions are information to include in your response.
   Is this a state requirement? What is the requirement and why must we implement it? Has history shown
   students need this course/program for some reason? Will this meet some specific workforce, university
   transfer or student success need? Are there partners, grant requirements, faculty collaborations or other
   reasons leading to the development of this course/program?

The new FCCJ Institute for Food Safety is an educational institute with an in-house laboratory providing fee-for-service
compliance testing to the food industry. Promulgating standards under American National Standards Institute and the
International Organization for Standardization (ANSI; ISO) for Food and Drug Administration, United States Department of
Agriculture, US Environmental Protection Agency (FDA, USDA, EPA) and State compliance is a major component of the
Institute for Food Safety.

Laboratory worker training for the novel international job market created as a result of creating the Institute for Food
Safety is needed, and this track is an indispensable part of the Institute for Food Safety mission. Essentially, FCCJ’s
industry partners have asked the college to create this new degree concentration to meet current and expected needs for
the growth of the food testing industry, and our partners are providing funding for the development and implementation of
the FCCJ Institute for Food Safety.

7. Write a rationale/need for the above action(s). This response should address the following questions. Is there
   a need for this course/program in our service district? How will this impact student success for upper division
   instruction or job placement? If the College already has a similar course/program, why are we developing this
   program/course and what are the differences between the programs and courses? How many students and
   what businesses or transfer institutions will benefit? Does this course/program support a College goal or
   initiative?

Biotechnology is broad discipline, for example medical biotechnology is broken down into two components: therapeutics
(medications, implantable devices, etc.) and diagnostics (reagents, devices, etc.). Our current Biotechnology Laboratory
Technician (BLT) program is designed around training students to work in research laboratories, such as Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville. This is a molecular biology intensive track that does enable students to find jobs on graduation in
laboratories involved in areas such as neurobiology and cancer research.

The proposed track is designed for employment in a new technology area for North Florida: food and environmental
analyses. This curriculum is part of an FCCJ/Industry partnership to build, equip, and operate a unique and proprietary
20,000 square foot laboratory as a satellite teaching, research, and testing facility near Downtown Campus. Although
many of the discipline’s instrument and technical tools are common with our existing BLT program this new track is
geared toward applied analytical chemistry and diagnostics. There will be greater focus in the new track on sample
handling, sample preparation, regulatory issues and instrument operations.

Students will not be disadvantaged by pursuing either track since the basic skill sets are in common. Students planning on
B.S or higher degrees, or interested mainly in working in research fields, will benefit from the current BLT track and the
additional practice in molecular biology tools. Students more interested in an immediate job on completion of the required
internship would benefit from the applied analytical track. Pipetting skills, formulation chemistry, basic molecular biology
and bioinformatics training are identical. Importantly, we know from experience that graduates skilled in cell culture are
highly employable, and this skill set is unchanged between the two program tracks.

Our existing Biotechnology Laboratory Technology program produces graduates skilled in conducting hands-on work in a
Principle Investigator (“PI”) led research laboratory. The new Biotechnology Testing Laboratory technician program track
will produce graduates ready for employment as part of a team working in a regulated multi-disciplinary analytical
laboratory. Graduates from either track can cross-over without additional coursework.
