Eagle I Ambassador Program

The Eagle International Ambassador Program (Eagle I) provides opportunities for international students to experience American culture through friendships with U.S. students — and helps American students expand their education through interaction with students from abroad. These relationships enhance cultural awareness and global learning.

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)

FGCU is  launching an initiative for collaborative online international learning, more commonly referred to as COIL, in an attempt to integrate an emerging curriculum into existing FGCU courses on a cross-disciplinary scale.  The initiative focuses on Globally Networked Learning (GNL); a teaching and learning methodology which provides innovative cost-effective internationalization strategies.  Such programs foster faculty and student interaction with peers abroad through co-taught multicultural online and blended learning environments emphasizing experiential student collaboration.
