Begin a lifetime of global learning
There are many ways to start your journey, from serving as a cultural representative
to participating in international programming. If volunteering abroad is part of your
plan, our exclusive Peace Corps Prep Program is a good first step.
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.
The International Organization aims to bring awareness and understanding of global perspectives and cultures through programs, events and socials. We do this by integrating our international students into campus life and creating a space where international experiences can be shared.
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.
