Scholarly Innovation & Student Research

Supports student and faculty research, creative endeavors, and scholarly efforts, as well as develop the skills required for students to be successful in the workforce

We work together to foster student scholars within their disciplines, all across campus, at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We support student and faculty research, creative endeavors, and scholarly activities as ways to enhance and professionalize student skills in writing, critical thinking, and information literacy, which are foundational skills to successful, impactful, and meaningful lives.

FGCUScholarly Newsletter 

The FGCUScholarly Newsletter informs readers about societal topics (e.g., systemic racism & climate change) and annual celebrations (e.g., Pride & Indigenous Heritage month) through a scholarly lens by highlighting relevant work done by FGCU faculty, students, and alumni. The result is a publication that seeks to educate and engage students in topics they care about through the scholarly work being conducted on campus.

Quality Enhancement Plan   

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which ran from 2015-2020, sought to advance the skills of writing, critical thinking, and information literacy within majors and thus create a culture of inquiry that begins in the first year with Composition and concludes in the senior year with the Capstone course.
