Important Message:

Given the directive from FGCU to host all course instruction online for the Summer 2020 academic semester, students are encouraged to engage in and/or pursue virtual service-learning experiences.  However, for students who are comfortable doing so, and are able to stay consistent with the Florida Governor’s Roadmap for Re-Opening (pg 11) and national CDC guidelines, in-person opportunities are also available.  If you reside in a state other than Florida, be sure to follow your local, state, and national guidelines. 

Service-learning resources and specific opportunities can be found here:  https://fgcu.campuslabs.com/engage/organization/slo.

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

Students enrolled in service-learning courses will be asked to acknowledge the following statement:
    Safety Participation: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I acknowledge there are additional risks in participating in face-to-face experiential learning and that I have been made aware of these risks and have been provided remote alternatives to in-person experiences, and have chosen to voluntarily engage in face-to-face experiential learning instead of the remote learning opportunities.  In participating in the in-person experiential opportunity, I agree to comply with the facility’s directions and CDC guidelines regarding personal protective equipment and social distancing and assume the risks of engaging in this activity.

Service-Learning Database

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.
