Student Engagement

Providing engaging experiences and supportive opportunities for our students to thrive on and off campus.

We have a responsive team that is dedicated to the individual needs for each student. We also work to support and advocate for the diverse of our student body. Our staff are fully committed to the personal growth of our students to help maximize their success while attending FGCU.

Led by Dr. Fisher, the Student Engagement unit has two primary objectives. First, we provide a wide array of intentional experiences designed to engage the student and connect them to the university community. Second, we provide care and support and promote a culture of health and well-being for our students.

They were the best support I had during a difficult time in my life. Received great advice and ways I can best handle what I was going through, but I was only able to become better if I was willing to put in the work.
