Support Hodges University
Hodges University began with a big idea: Prepare men and women for successful careers and personal achievement by providing a learning environment that combines a broad spectrum of degree programs that fulfill the needs of area employers with a faculty that brings real world experience to the classroom.
Our distinguished faculty includes internationally recognized scholars and celebrated authors. Our students are academically qualified, and our facilities are state of the art. Our over 8,000 alumni are recognized professionals who serve our community in countless ways. Today, we are educating over 2,500 students with campuses in Naples and Fort Myers. In addition, the University offers programs at several learning sites including Immokalee at Jubilation; Pasco-Hernando State College in New Port Richey, and Brooksville; Florida Keys Community College; South Florida State College in Avon Park; and has expanded its outreach throughout the United States and abroad by offering online education programs of study. In just 23 years, Hodges University has been recognized as one of the leading institutions of higher learning in the State of Florida. Hodges University has thrived, not from the support of the taxpayer, but rather the generosity of benefactors who believe that their gifts are an investment in a valued community asset and an intelligent business decision.
Academically, the University recently completed its ten year reaffirmation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Under Dr. Terry McMahan’s leadership and that of our new President, Dr. Jeanette Brock, the visiting accreditation team reported that the University received zero recommendations, which is extraordinarily rare, and a credit to our entire faculty and staff.
Hodges University is committed to the power of higher education as a proven path to individual professional and personal growth and development. We continue to educate an economically diverse knowledge based workforce and are poised to make bold strides to meet the future educational needs of the region. Hodges does the research and develops the curriculum required to empower its students with the education they need to succeed and serve our community.
On behalf of our President, faculty, staff, and the Department of University Advancement, I invite you to join our many supporters to help us educate the next generation of community leaders, one that will positively impact our region for years to come.
Vice President of University Advancement
