FAMU’s Crestview Education Center will be an interdisciplinary campus. According to the authorizing legislation, the center will offer "instructional programs leading to the PharmD; B.S. or M.S. nursing; master of public health and doctorate of public health; and health care management, health administration, occupational therapy, and physical therapy."
Former State Sen. Durell Peaden, R-Crestview steered a total of $11M into FAMU’s budget during the 2009 and 2010 legislative sessions in order to cover start-up costs such as facility renovations for the satellite campus. His successor, State Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, is working to help the FAMU center open as planned in Fall 2012 despite Gov. Rick Scott’s decision to veto the center’s $1.5M operational funding appropriation.
