FGCU Faculty can earn compensation through Honors College activities such as: Supervising
Honors Contracts, Teaching Honors Embedded Courses, Honors Thesis Supervision, Honors
Directed Independent Research and Extended Field-Based Activities.
Honors Contracts provide students the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor
on an independent project in a course he or she is enrolled in. Students develop special
skills and gain in-depth knowledge related to the course.
Honors students within a course open to all students can gain Honors credit by working
on a group project, decided by the faculty, with their fellow Honors classmates. An
Embedded Course allows faculty to expand their teaching approach while Honors students
expand their leadership, teamwork, and scholarly skills.
Honors College faculty are dedicated teachers and innovative researchers. Active in
their respective fields, they know the hard work and persistence it takes to advance
academically. Small class sizes allow Honors faculty to invest personalized time in mentoring,
teaching and leading their students.
