As Hodges University's degree programs expand and enrollment continues to increase, it has become critical to expand the University's Naples campus in order to keep up with demand. Increased capital funding is needed in order to reach the planned campus vision reflecting the academic and community values of the University.
The proposed master plan calls for a campus respecting the natural environment and practicing environmental stewardship. An additional three-story, 45,000 square foot building will contribute to the institution's educational excellence, as well as provide a coveted community resource center.
The first floor will have a community facility open to businesses, organizations, clubs and the public for seminars, art exhibits and conventions. The second floor will have state-of-the art computer technology labs and classrooms. The third floor will be reserved for a comprehensive Library, complete with traditional books and journals, online services, e-books, virtual library products, multimedia and other technologies.
Fort Myers Campus:
Hodges University moved into a new Fort Myers campus in 2005. The three-story, 60,000 square foot building, located at Colonial Boulevard and Winkler Extension, also contains a community facility, state-of-the art computer labs, classrooms, an administrative and student center, and a comprehensive Library.
Increased capital funding will enable Hodges University to meet enrollment needs and appropriately serve our students and their community employers, who rely on our graduates' skills, talents and knowledge.
An investment in Hodges University today ensures the future of our efforts in educating new citizen leaders and preparing exceptional workers, thereby contributing to the adequacy and success of our local workforce and economy.
