The FGCU Service-Learning Hurricane Ian Recovery Program is an initiative through the Office of Service-Learning & Civic Engagement to provide as much volunteer assistance to the community as possible following Hurricane Ian, which made landfall in SW Florida on September 28, 2022.
Students may assist with hurricane recovery efforts in SW Florida and document the hours toward their FGCU service-learning graduation requirement. Because students’ service in the community is helping the Office of Service-Learning & Civic Engagement fulfill the objectives of its recovery program, students do not need an additional community partner. With this program, the Office of Service-Learning & Civic Engagement is the required community partner of record. As noted below, when documenting hours in Eagle Service Network for this program, students will enter “FGCU Service-Learning Hurricane Ian Recovery Program” as the registered 501c3 non-profit organization or government agency you are partnering with for service.
