Mission Statement

Florida Gulf Coast University supports initiatives to ensure that all children have the reading and math skills necessary to be successful and productive citizens. The America Reads and America Counts programs are integral to university efforts to provide assistance and expertise to the public schools in the FGCU service area.

Description

Florida Gulf Coast University takes pride in partnerships forged with the communities it serves. Students are central to these partnerships and are provided opportunities for community involvement through the Service Learning programs. Students are expected to meet University learning outcomes in classrooms, in field experiences and through community experiences. Community service experiences suppport learning outcomes, foster civic responsibility and develop informed citizens who participate in their communities after graduation in personally and professionally relevant ways. An appreciation for the interconnectedness of individuals, the communities in which they live, and the resources required to sustain both is facilitated by the reflective component built into the Service Learning program.
