Community Speaks Lecture Series


Community Speaks Logo

The mission of the Office of Community Outreach is to foster strong University-community partnerships that increase the visibility, accountability, and participation of the University in the surrounding Southwest Florida community, assist with the recruitment and retention efforts of the University, and create a cohesive support system for students from traditionally underserved or underrepresented backgrounds. In keeping with this mission, we sponsor The Community Speaks leture series, which features community leaders from Southwest Florida.

Each lecture is on the main campus of Florida Gulf Coast University and begins with a small reception. We invite you to attend and bring a guest for an intimate evening with our speakers. To RSVP, contact our office at (239) 590-1258, or email us at
