The Office of Scholarly Innovation & Student Research supports hands-on experiences through research, employment opportunities, and various academic awards to facilitate student and faculty learning within any discipline.
The FGCUScholarly Newsletter informs readers about societal topics (e.g. systemic racism & climate change) and annual celebrations (e.g. Pride & Indigenous Heritage month) through a scholarly lens by highlighting relevant work done by FGCU faculty, students, and alumni. The result is a publication that seeks to educate and engage students in topics they care about through the scholarly work being conducted on campus.
To me, FGCUScholars is enrichment of the mind and passion. Through scholarly activities you open up numerous pathways to things you’d never thought of as interesting.”
Research has helped me the most with my communication skills, from having to talk to different audiences and tailor my research presentations, to writing manuscripts for publication and reviewing papers. Doing research at FGCU has also provided me with a space to be a leader towards my peers while also working as a team and coming up with great projects. However, research always comes with challenges and because of it, I have been able to step outside the box and be resourceful to solve problems that might arise along the way.”
Quality Enhancement Plan
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which ran from 2015-2020, sought to advance the skills of writing, critical thinking, and information literacy within majors and thus create a culture of inquiry that begins in the first year with Composition and concludes in the senior year with the Capstone course.
