Community Relations


The Community Relations Subcommittee's charge is to focus on enhancing Florida State University's outreach efforts to exemplify the University's commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. FSU's outreach to, as well as partnerships with, the internal and external communities illustrate our responsiveness to an increasingly diverse world, and the value we place on inclusion.

FSU values the input of the greater community at large, and seeks to contribute back to the community in a meaningful way. Examples include:

Outreach Efforts for External Community

  • The Entrepreneurial Boot Camp for Veterans (EBV) Program
    EBV offers cutting edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines disabled as a result of their service supporting post-9/11 operations. The intent of the EBV is to open the door to entrepreneurial opportunity and small business ownership by developing competencies in the many steps and activities associated with creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture. This is also achieved by helping veterans coordinate their efforts with programs and services for veterans and others with disabilities.
