Community Engagement & Research Day

 

Celebrating a tradition of excellence

Each spring, Community Engagement & Research Day (CERD) showcases outstanding service and research projects completed by FGCU students during the academic year.

This year we are upholding the tradition remotely on April 17 by using the Zoom meeting platform to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We greatly appreciate the contributions of students, faculty and staff who came together to make this event possible.
