Adaptive Services


FGCU is committed to delivering website content that is accessible and easy to navigate for all users. We have implemented a new service developed by ITI Communications called FACIL’iti that allows you to choose website display preferences that adjust to your unique needs.

FACIL’iti is a seamless interface that works on to improve your browsing experience so it is completely customizable and adaptive, while preserving the content of the website.

Office of Adaptive Services Mission Statement

The goal of Adaptive Services is to enhance access for students, faculty, staff and guests with disabilities by providing effective reasonable accommodations through educating the campus community and promoting equal access and opportunity.



 It is the policy of Adaptive Services to exist under the premise of Florida Gulf Coast University and its mission. FGCU promotes diversity and stresses the importance of learned knowledge and service to the community by providing services and accommodations to individuals who have a documented disabling condition, which could have adverse effects for the individual while attending FGCU. Individuals with a documented condition will be provided services and accommodations that will supplement their learning styles and aid them in becoming academically, professionally and personally successful. Adaptive Services also promotes self-advocacy and each individual receiving assistance will be guided to become more independent and successful learners.
