Sept. 27, 2022 | FGCU is canceling all classes and non-essential campus activities Thursday and Friday. FGCU leaders will evaluate methods for students to make up for lost instructional time, which will likely include the use of planned study dates as regular academic class.

The intent is to organize an interprofessional framework of disciplines representing faculty and team science focused on the application of psychoeducational strategies and community assets to improve the delivery of health and human services within this focal area.
