A Sustainable Future: University Colloquium

Important Message:

Florida Gulf Coast University has moved all classes to  remote instruction through summer 2020. In response, virtual field trip options are being created in order to allow students to safely explore the natural and built environments of southwest Florida.  In addition, the Office of Service Learning and Civic Engagement has developed a list of virtual service-learning options for students.

Preparing students for success in a rapidly changing world

University Colloquium introduces students to the complexities of developing the sustainable societal patterns each will face as they launch their careers.  Faculty members from every college as well as members of the community join students from all majors for discussion in the classroom and experiential learning in the community.
