Florida Gulf Coast University recently launched PAGES – a new career development initiative designed specifically for students in humanities and social sciences majors. FGCU will work in partnership with local Chambers, professional groups and individual businesses and professionals to provide career exploration and career exploration resources to students in the program. PAGES will utilize a peer coaching model whereby students help each other clarify professional goals early in their college careers, and hold their peers accountable for steps taken to achieve those goals. This program is being piloted this Academic Year at FGCU.
