The Office of Service-Learning & Civic Engagement has a new location on campus:
McTarnaghan Hall, Suite 229.
Safety is a priority when engaging in experiential learning opportunities. Due to the ongoing pandemic and before engaging in service-learning, we require students read the following COVID-19 safety statement. Students enrolled in service-learning courses will also be asked to acknowledge this statement in their course. For the most updated university information please see the FGCU Coronavirus Updates page.
Service-Learning & Civic Engagement staff remain available to assist via phone, email, or to meet individually as needed by appointment via phone or video chat during regular business hours. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

The database is a resource for students developing service-learning opportunities and faculty teaching service-learning courses. The agencies listed are not the only agencies that are appropriate for service-learning but they already have developed a relationship with FGCU, are pre-approved for service-learning, have an understanding of what service-learning means and what activities students can do to fulfill their service-learning hours.
All agencies listed in our database are nonprofit, not-for-profit, or a governmental organization.
There are two ways to search for an approved agency:
- Search for the name of the organization, such as Harry Chapin Food Bank
- Some organization names are listed under the letter "T" for the word "the". For example, The Talkin' Monkeys Project, The Salvation Army.
- Search by location such as, Lee County, Collier County, Charlotte County, etc.
- Search by job type such as, environment, education, social services, health, FGCU campus, legal services, marketing, etc.
