 USSSA Fall 2017 Call


Marieb College of Health & Human Services Writing Guide!!!!! 

The Office of Undergraduate Scholarship was established to support the Quality Enhancement Plan, FGCUScholars: Think ~ Discover ~ Write. With faculty and staff members from across campus, we work together to foster student scholars within their disciplines. This office supports student research, creative endeavors, and scholarly activities as ways to enhance and professionalize student skills in writing, critical thinking, and information literacy. These skills are foundational to successful, impactful, and meaningful lives. Please use this website to find resources and opportunities.

We also support the mission of the university through promoting environmental sustainability, embracing diversity, nurturing community partnerships, encouraging civic engagement and service learning, and cultivating habits of lifelong learning. In addition, the Office of Undergraduate Scholarship through FGCUScholars: Think ~ Discover ~ Write values all students, faculty, and staff regardless of national origin or immigration status. We support the free cultural exchange of ideas as being at the heart of the academic endeavor. This exchange deepens and broadens our students’ perspectives in an increasingly globalized society.

I look forward to seeing you around campus.
