Honors Fellows

Honors Faculty Fellows are leaders who exemplify the Elements of Honors through teaching, service and leadership.

Honors Fellows are full-time, in-unit FGCU faculty members who teach the equivalent of six credits for the Honors College per academic year as part of their assigned annual teaching duties. This is typically one three-hour course in the fall and spring semesters. Honors Fellows are appointed for three-year terms, and new members do not teach for the Honors College during their first semester as an Honors Fellow.
