Each Spring, Community Engagement and Research Day showcases outstanding service and research projects completed by FGCU students during the academic year.

This year, the tradition was held remotely on April 17th via the Zoom Meeting platform to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Without the contributions of the students, faculty, and staff, this would not have been made possible.

The Department wants to congratulate everyone who participated in the 2020 Community Engagement and Research Day, including the judges who still interacted with students despite being entirely virtual, as well as the faculty mentors who assisted the students with their research.

The Marieb College of Health and Human Services Dean's Award Best Undergraduate Presentation was awarded to Athletic Training student, Chelsea Lively for her research on Testicular Rupture in Professional Baseball Outfielder.
