South Florida Education Center

The South Florida Education Center (SFEC) is the consortium of educational institutions located within the Town of Davie.  

The institutions are: 

  • Broward College
  • Florida Atlantic University - Broward
  • McFatter Technical Center
  • Nova Southeastern University
  • University of Florida

Traffic Generator

The SFEC campus has become one of the biggest generators of traffic in Broward County.  Therefore, the schools came together to form the South Florida Education Center Transportation Management Association or SFEC TMA to help with the mobility and parking problems.

Alternative Transportation

The SFEC TMA is a private, nonprofit organization representing a partnership of SFEC educational institutions, the Town of Davie and the Florida Department of Transportation whose mission is to develop strategies and implement programs that provide alternative transportation options for improved mobility in the South Florida Center area.
