Does the institution administer and/or participate in a program or programs to help build a diverse faculty that meet the criteria for this credit?:

A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

In support of the University's strategic initiative on diversity, the GRANT-IN-AID (GIA) EDUCATIONAL LEAVE AWARD PROGRAM provides paid educational leave to eligible faculty and staff pursuing programs of study that assist them toward
enhancement and growth in their current and prospective university roles. (http://www.fgcu.edu/EquityandDiversity/grantinaid.html)

FGCU also offers a tuition voucher which is available to full-time FGCU employees, in an established position and /or on approved educational leave with or without pay, for FGCU courses only. Employees may take up to six credit hours of course work per term. Employees may assign this benefit to a eligible spouse and/or dependent who is enrolled in an undergraduate degree seeking program at FGCU. Registration is not subject to space availability, therefore employees may register according to the dates published in the Schedule of Classes. (http://www.fgcu.edu/HR/benefitshandbook.html)
