Strategic Roadmap

Plotting a course to continued success

FGCU is creating the framework for its next Strategic Plan.

The FGCU Roadmap initiative is focused on gathering input from students, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve to understand our strategic priorities for the coming years. This input will help expedite the formulation of our next strategic plan shortly after the new president arrives in early 2023. In essence, we're planning for the next strategic plan.

Your input matters.

FGCU Celebrates 25 Years

Education inspires growth, creates prosperity, strengthens community. With that idea, we launched a new university 25 years ago for Southwest Florida. Created a pipeline of teachers and nurses. Social workers and scientists. Engineers and entrepreneurs.

FGCU stakeholder and community engagement

Florida Gulf Coast University is launching a new initiative to gather feedback from the entire FGCU community that will be used to inform and shape the university's strategic plan. In the coming weeks, students, parents, faculty/staff, alumni and community members will be asked to complete a survey or participate in focus groups to share thoughts, ideas and suggestions that will keep FGCU on the leading edge of innovation and acutely focused on student success and overall excellence.

Plan ahead to participate in upcoming town hall discussions - on campus or online

To provide flexible opportunities for students, parents, faculty, staff, and the FGCU community to participate in town hall meetings, the calendar highlights on campus and online meetings for various audience members. Please save the date and plan to join us.


You are welcome to attend any session that fits your schedule - regardless of county/community/location.
