Community Partners

Share your service opportunities with students

Service-learning is an integral part of the FGCU student experience. All FGCU students are required to complete service-learning hours in order to graduate.

We welcome nonprofit organizations and government agencies as community partners, to submit requests for FGCU student volunteers.  

Community partners are:

  • Viewed as co-educators
  • Must be willing to integrate learning into each volunteer or service opportunity
  • Required to verify a student’s hours via our online system once the service is completed

In addition to submitting service-learning opportunities, community partners may register to be added as a pre-approved service site.  This registration adds you to a list used by students when they are searching for approved partners in the community. Students use this database to match their interests with appropriate agencies, so it’s important to keep your information up to date.

Students should only engage in in-person opportunities if they feel completely comfortable doing so, are doing so by their own choice, and are able to stay within local, state, and CDC guidelines and recommendations.

The Service-Learning Staff will be working remotely for this period of time.  Please direct any questions or concerns to  Our team will be available during regular business hours to meet individually as needed by appointment via Zoom.
