Florida’s State University System Board of Governors recently rolled out an updated website to help employers connect with Florida graduates. “Think Florida: A Higher Degree for Business” links the resources of the university system to employers, new graduates and job seekers across the state.

The State University System of Florida is composed of 12 public universities. In total it incudes more than 341,000 students, making it the second largest system in the country. Each institution has its own distinct mission, but all have one thing in common. They are committed to building relationships with the business community.
One of the 12 universities is right here in our Southwest Florida backyard, Florida Gulf Coast University (Fort Myers, FL)
Florida Gulf Coast University, a comprehensive institution of higher education, offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs of strategic importance to Southwest Florida and beyond. FGCU seeks academic excellence in the development of selected programs and centers of distinction in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, health professions, business, and marine and environmental sciences. Outstanding faculty and staff supported by a strong community of advisors prepare students for gainful employment and successful lives as responsible, productive and engaged citizens. FGCU emphasizes innovative, student-centered teaching and learning, promotes and practices environmental sustainability, embraces diversity, nurtures community partnerships, values public service, encourages civic responsibility, and cultivates habits of lifelong learning and the discovery of new knowledge.
