Jacksonville University receives an annual appropriation from the Florida Department of Education that supports the EPIC Program at JU. 

The EPIC Program at JU enables transformative learning by 

  • encouraging a continuum of research, creative, and scholarly activities within the EPIC disciplines of STEM/STEAM, Healthcare Sciences, Business, Aviation, Public Policy, and Sustainability while emphasizing the skills students need for entry into the Florida workforce, and
  • strengthening academic support systems across campus to enhance the student experience and prepare students for entry into the Florida workforce.  

Purpose of this Call for Projects: In preparation for the FY 2022-23 EPIC appropriation, we seek well-defined projects that will enhance the intellectual environment of the campus by aligning with one of the goals listed below: 

Goal 1: Enhance JU’s academic programming to align with the skills and competencies needed by Florida’s future workforce. 

Goal 2: Strengthen existing and develop new academic support systems and resources that will enhance both teaching and learning at JU.   Examples of academic support systems include but are not limited to career management/interview skills, academic advisement tools, improvements to academic technology, library resources, resources for tutoring and/or counseling, etc.
