FGCU President Dr. Mike Martin on Re-opening Campus

As parents weigh the risks of sending kids back to school against the need to get back to work, county school districts and state universities have been putting together plans of the fall semester. Recently, Florida Gulf Coast University submitted its plan for a flexible re-opening to the state board of governors, which approved the plan.
