Documenting Service-Learning Opportunities 

Community engagement is so deeply valued at FGCU that every undergraduate student has service-learning as part of their degree requirements. Each student is encouraged to complete this requirement within their first two years of enrolling at FGCU and to do so in a way that connects their passions with their career goals.

It is vital that each student records their service-learning hours in Eagle Service Network at the end of each experience. Service-learning hours must be tracked and verified with a nonprofit or government agency in Eagle Service Network to count toward the graduation requirement. Below are a number of resources to assist with the process of tracking and verifying service-learning hours. Please reach out to servicelearning@fgcu.edu with any questions or concerns.

Note about Community Partner Pre-Approval: Service-learning experiences can be completed with nearly any nonprofit or government agency. However, to be certain, the best practice is to get each community partner pre-approved in Eagle Service Network prior to engaging in service. See the Service-Learning Guide for guidance through the process.
