About Us


Students on Campus

The Office of Undergraduate Studies was established in fall 2011 to advance student success and engagement and to highlight the outstanding work of the faculty and staff in undergraduate studies at Florida Gulf Coast University. Undergraduate Studies coordinates a variety of offices, programs, and projects with the aim of establishing connections across disciplinary areas, faculty and staff efforts, academic colleges, and the Divisions of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Financial Affairs.

Programs and projects that are currently underway include the First Year Reading Project, the Step Ahead Program, Effective Learning classes, linked cohort classes in General Education, a university-wide assessment project for writing effectiveness, and the integration of service-learning into the curriculum. Several offices that report to Undergraduate Studies are central to advancing these projects and are instrumental in enhancing student success:
