“THE CITY OF PALMS”

CITY OF

In the late 1800s, Tootie McGregor and Thomas & Mina Edison began the beautification of Fort Myers. Imported Royal Palms were planted along Riverside Drive, later renamed McGregor Boulevard. These magnificent Royal Palms, some towering at 75 feet, give the City of Palms its nickname. Incorporated in 1886, Fort Myers is the center of a popular tourist area in Southwest Florida and the seat of Lee County. It is located about 120 miles south of Tampa at the meeting point of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. Fort Myers was the frequent winter home of Thomas Edison and is the current home of the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training camps. The first known resident of what is now Fort Myers was Manuel Gonzalez, a Spaniard from the province of Asturias, who came via Cuba in the 19th century.

Fort Myers, built in 1850 as a military fort to fend off Seminole Indians that were massacring the area's few settlers, was named after Col. Abraham C. Myers, who was stationed in Florida for seven years and was the son-in-law of the fort's establisher and commander. In 1858, after years of elusive battle, Chief Billy Bowlegs and his warriors were persuaded to surrender and move west, and the fort was abandoned. Billy's Creek, which flows into the Caloosahatchee River and runs between The Beau Rivage Condominiums and Alta Mar, was named after a temporary camp where Billy Bowlegs and his men awaited ships to take them west. The fort was abandoned until 1863 when a small number of Federal troops re-occupied the fort during the Civil War. In 1865 the fort was attacked unsuccessfully by a very small group of Confederates. After the war, the fort was again deserted. The first settlers arrived in 1866, but it wasn't until 1882 when the city experienced a significant influx of settlers. By 1885, when Fort Myers was incorporated, it was the second largest city only to Tampa on Florida's west coast south of Cedar Key - even larger than Clearwater and Sarasota, also growing cities at the time. Fort Myers first became a nationally known winter resort with the building of The Royal Palm Hotel in 1898. The real spark of the city's growth was the construction of the Tamiami Trail Bridge built across the Caloosahatchee River in 1924. After the bridge's construction, the city experienced its first real estate boom and many subdivisions sprouted around the city.

FORT MYERS IS... • The home of the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Winter Estates • The home of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball club of the Florida State League, and is the spring training locale for the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox. • The home of three minor league sports teams. The Florida Everblades (ECHL hockey team), Florida Firecats (Arena Football League 2 team) and Florida Stingrays (AIFA indoor football team).

FORT MYERS

The Florida of days long past, with unspoiled white sand beaches, exotic wildlife and lush subtropical foliage, still can be found on The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel in southwest Florida. Known as Florida’s tropical island getaway, this paradise is a favorite vacation spot because of its feel of old Florida that no longer exists in many areas. In addition to the beautiful natural environment, active travelers are pleased to find an abundance of golf, tennis and watersports, as well as some unusual attractions. Lee County embraces nine distinct areas, each with its own unique character. Best known are Sanibel and Captiva islands, connected to the mainland by an alluring three-mile-long causeway and, to each other, by a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it bridge at Blind Pass. Sanibel is known worldwide for its shelling. More than 400 varieties of shells litter the beaches, and particularly can be found after an especially high or low tide. For most visitors, however, shelling is merely a delightful excuse to enjoy hours of sun worshipping along some of the finest shoreline in North America. Interesting shops, restaurants, and art galleries dot the road from the Sanibel Lighthouse to Tarpon Bay Road. On the way to Captiva Island, located toward Sanibel’s northern tip, the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is home to many exotic species of birds and plants. A four-mile drive with access to walking and canoe/kayak trails offers outstanding wildlife viewing opportunities. The refuge occupies more than half the island. The main attraction on Captiva is that there are none. Many people wile away the hours in one outdoor endeavor or another. It was here that Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of the famous aviator, wrote her best-selling book, “A Gift from the Sea.” Further south, Estero Island, home of Fort Myers Beach, long has been recognized as one of the “world’s safest beaches” because of its gently sloping shoreline. The sand is particularly soft and white, akin to powdered sugar. Especially suited for family vacations, Estero offers every imaginable water toy, from windsurfer to catamaran and parasailing. Numerous marinas operate boating and fishing charters. Local restaurants benefit from the catch, which generally includes red snapper and grouper. Anyone suffering from island fever can find instant relief by paying a call to the “City of Palms,” in Fort Myers, with its charming downtown historic district and expanding hub of urban activity that extends to shopping malls, restaurants, and nightclubs. Inventor Thomas Edison and his friend, automobile manufacturer Henry Ford, decided early on to make their winter homes in Fort Myers. Today visitors tour their neighboring estates with Edison’s botanical gardens, laboratory and museum. During Edison’s 46 winters in Fort Myers, he and his wife Mina hosted well-known house guests like industrialist Harvey Firestone, President Herbert Hoover and cereal king John Harvey Kellogg. Henry Ford purchased his quaint home, “Mangoes,” in 1916 to spend the winter months visiting Edison. The two properties were separated by a fence the two families named “The Friendship Gate.” Other in-town attractions include the Southwest Florida Historical Museum, downtown river cruises, and the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and Eden Vineyards, the country’s southernmost bonded winery, to the east are also popular stops. For the sports minded, public golf courses and tennis courts make southwest Florida some of the best playing turf in the state.

THIS IS ...

FLORIDA GULF

Florida Gulf Coast University, with its innovative programs, technology friendly campus, and outstanding faculty, is one of the most exciting educational environments in America.

Florida Gulf Coast University, a member of the State University System of Florida, is a comprehensive university created to address the educational needs of the rapidly growing Southwest Florida population. Classrooms showcase state-of-the-art multimedia instructional systems that feature Internet access, document cameras, and audio and video presentations. FGCU is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degrees. Florida Gulf Coast received initial accreditation by SACS in 1999. The history of Florida Gulf Coast University is a visionary one built on support for providing higher education opportunities in Southwest Florida. Area citizens began the initiative to bring a state university to this part of Florida, and their early requests were quickly supported by elected officials at the local and state levels. With support from the Florida Board of Regents and the full Florida Legislature, a new university was born. The Board of Regents formally recommended in January 1991 the development of Florida’s tenth state university to be located in Southwest Florida; and, in May 1991, then Governor Lawton Chiles signed the legislation authorizing the new university. Southwest Florida’s support for a university was never more evident than during the next year, when private landowners offered more than 20 gift sites for the university campus. In early 1992, the Board of Regents selected the site offered by Ben Hill Griffin III and Alico, Inc. of 760 acres of land located just east of Interstate 75 between Alico and Corkscrew Roads. Roy McTarnaghan was named founding university president in April 1993. Initial staff were hired that summer, and the university’s academic and campus planning began in earnest. Plans for the first phase of campus construction were unveiled in February 1994; and shortly thereafter, the Florida Legislature named the institution as Florida Gulf Coast University. The vision for the university was one which would address emerging higher education needs for the 21st century, including the use of technology in the learning/teaching process and multi-year contracts as an alternative to faculty tenure. The Board of Regents approved an agreement in May 1995 with the United Faculty of Florida allowing FGCU to offer a contract system for faculty members. Campus groundbreaking was held on November 28, 1995, with more than 600 people participating in the celebratory event for Southwest Florida. With aggressive academic programs and campus development schedules slated to culminate in an opening day of August 25, 1997, the early staff and faculty were busy meeting deadlines every month. Inaugural degree programs were approved by the Board of Regents in March 1996. The FGCU Foundation, a private fundraising arm of the university, gained extraordinary financial support for an institution which at the time could only be seen on a drawing board. Faculty throughout the country were attracted to FGCU for the opportunity to offer higher education in new and innovative ways. The first FGCU student, Mariana Coto, was admitted in January 1997; and she participated in the historic ribbon cutting on the university’s August 25, 1997 opening day. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools awarded FGCU accreditation candidacy later that year, and a comprehensive self-study was launched. The first commencement was held in May 1998, with 81 FGCU graduates. In August 1998, the first phase of student housing opened. In September, Founding President McTarnaghan announced his intention to step down on May 1, 1999.

COAST UNIVERSITY

FGCU’s second commencement ceremonies, held May 1999, marked the last official act of the founding president, as well as the graduation of 417 students. The Board of Regents launched a national search held during the spring and summer for FGCU’s second president; and the university received official notification in June 1999 that it had achieved, in record time, accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In July 1999, the Board of Regents named William C. Merwin as FGCU’s second president. President Merwin arrived on campus for his first day on September 16, 1999. He immediately initiated a highly participatory strategic planning process for students, faculty, and staff to carry the young institution to its next stage of development. The Florida Legislature established governing boards of trustees for state universities in 2001, and 13 members were appointed to the Florida Gulf Coast University Board of Trustees. This governing board is providing leadership that is community based, responsive to the market, and nimble. In January 2007, FGCU President Bill Merwin retired, and Dean of the Lutgert College of Business Richard Pegnetter was named Interim President by the FGCU Board of Trustees. A national and highly competitive search for FGCU’s third president was launched. On the university’s 10th anniversary of its opening day - August 25, 2007 - the FGCU Board of Trustees selected Wilson G. Bradshaw to serve as the institution’s third president. President Bradshaw has the important responsibility of leading FGCU into its second decade of development and service as an institution offering access to quality higher education in Southwest Florida. As FGCU moves forward, student applications and admissions are dramatically increasing; campus construction of academic and support buildings remains aggressive; new undergraduate and graduate degree programs are being added; our athletics program has moved from NCAA Division II to Division I; the FGCU Foundation’s private fundraising continues to be successful; and the excitement level for FGCU’s future is high.

Academics: Six colleges offer 51 undergraduate degree programs and 30 graduate degree programs in Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Health Professions and Professional Studies. Business, Criminal Justice, Nursing, Education and Communication are among the most popular. Student-to-Faculty Ratio: With more than 950 full-time faculty and staff employed, FGCU features small class sizes and individual attention to every student at an 18:1 ratio. Student Body: FGCU’s growing enrollment tops 11,000 students. Students come from 45 states, the District of Columbia and over 88 countries. Admissions: FGCU has a rolling admission policy. Freshmen are encouraged to apply six to eight months before anticipated enrollment. FGCU admits approximately 60 percent of freshman applicants. Most students accepted possess a 3.39 high school grade point average and test scores of at least 21 on the ACT and 1050 on the SAT I. FGCU invites interested students to the Eagle EXPO Open House conducted annually in October. Financial Assistance/Scholarships: Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

KEN KAVANAGH - DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Ken Kavanagh, 49, begins his first year as Director of Athletics at Florida Gulf Coast University, having accomplished a great deal in his career to date. Kavanagh, the second full-time athletic director in school history, began his duties at FGCU in June of 2009. Kavanagh, who came to FGCU after 13 years at Bradley University, was appointed to his position on May 7, 2009 by FGCU President Dr. Wilson G. Bradshaw. The final year in Kavanagh’s first decade on Bradley’s “Hilltop” will go down as one of the greatest all-around years in BU Athletics history. During the 2005-06 season, a school-record three teams earned NCAA Tournament invitations, beginning with the third at-large selection for the soccer program in the fall and continuing with the men’s basketball team’s historic run to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 in March that included victories over nationally ranked Kansas and Pitt. In addition, the women’s golf team won its fourth Missouri Valley Conference championship in eight years to gain its third trip to the NCAA Regionals. In 2007-08, Men’s Soccer reached a milestone “Elite Eight” appearance and men’s basketball also achieved a runner-up finish in the 2008 initial College Basketball Invitational (CIT). Most recently, in 2008-09, the Braves witnessed benchmark success with their first ever Missouri Valley Conference tournament title and NCAA Tournament berth and victory in softball, a runner-up finish in the inaugural Collegeinsider.com (CIT) post-season men’s basketball tournament and a record 21 victories in women’s basketball. While the Braves enjoyed successes on the playing field with Kavanagh, Bradley’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. For eight consecutive years, Bradley led the Valley in federal graduation rate (77 percent) and remained well ahead of the curve in the NCAA’s new Academic Progress Rate, receiving public recognition for its APR success in soccer, men’s golf, women’s tennis and volleyball. During Kavanagh’s tenure at Bradley, the Braves accumulated 31 Academic All-America or Scholar All-America awards. BU also achieved new single game, regular season and attendance marks in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s soccer, and volleyball under his direction, as well as record revenue streams from external sources. Kavanagh helped Bradley’s Athletic facilities make significant strides during his tenure: most notably, the baseball team’s move to O’Brien Field (home Stadium of the Chicago Cubs Class “A” affiliate the Peoria Chiefs) in 2002 and the subsequent transformation of the old ballpark into Shea Stadium. Opened in August of 2003, this soccer exclusive venue is one of the finest of its kind in the entire Midwest. Additional enhancements included aesthetic aspects of Carver Arena (home venue for men’s basketball) and Haussler Hall (athletic complex), locker room improvements for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball, as well as upgrades to the sports medicine training, department offices, Bradley Park softball complex and the realization of the Markin Tennis Courts. Most recently, Robertson Memorial Fieldhouse underwent a transformation during the summer of 2004, highlighted by the construction of a new strength and conditioning facility, satellite training area, women’s basketball offices and student-athlete study center. Under Kavanagh’s direction in 1996, Bradley Athletics established the BU B.L.A.S.T. (Building Leadership And Supporting Teams) NCAA Life Skills Program, which is designed to enhance the total being of Braves’ student-athletes. It involves activities ranging from personal, social and career development to community service projects and leadership opportunities. Also, Bradley was commended in March of 2002 by U.S. News & World Report for having the seventh-best College Sports Program in terms of gender equity and the athletic department’s effort for equality was further recognized in 2007 when Bradley received an “A” from the Women’s Sports Foundation for its gender equity performance. Kavanagh served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Committee, a panel that he chaired in 2007. This body is responsible for selecting the 48 teams that compete in the NCAA Tournament and oversees the administration of the event. He served two terms as the vice-president of the Missouri Valley Conference joint committee and was also a member of the MVC’s Executive and Media/Marketing Committees. He also chaired the MVC’s Championship and Officiating Committees and was a member of the MVC’s Gender Equity, Sportsmanship and Conference Relations Committees. One of the founders of the I-AAA Athletic Directors’ Association in 2000-01, Kavanagh is the Third Vice-President for the organization, which is comprised of the 101 non-football playing Division I member institutions and nine related conferences. In recognition of his accomplishments at Bradley and as a leader in college athletics, Kavanagh was named the Central Region Division I AstroTurf Athletic Director of the Year during the 2008 National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics convention in Dallas. Also active in civic organizations, Kavanagh has previously served on the advisory boards for the Salvation Army and Dunlap Recreation Association and he is a long-standing current board member and three-term past president of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Peoria. A member of the 1999 Peoria’s “40 Leaders Under Forty” class, Kavanagh also maintains active membership with the Knights of Columbus. Kavanagh went to Bradley from Bowling Green State University, where he steadily moved up the administrative ranks in nine years. After starting as an assistant athletic director in 1987, Kavanagh left BGSU in 1996 as the senior associate athletic director. In his final position with the Falcons, Kavanagh was the administrator for football, men’s basketball and hockey while also acting as event manager. Responsible for facility management, he also supervised the staffs for sports medicine, equipment and strength and conditioning. Kavanagh also served as the chief liaison for the financial affairs area. Kavanagh began his administrative career by working in the athletic department at Yale University from 1982 to 1985, then worked as a graduate assistant in the athletic department at the University of Notre Dame from 1985 to 1987 before joining Bowling Green. Athletic administration runs in Kavanagh’s bloodlines: his uncle, Kevin Kavanagh, is the former baseball coach and athletic director at Loyola College in Baltimore, planting the seed that athletic administration would be his nephew’s calling. Likewise, Ken Kavanagh’s father, John, coached a highly-successful high school summer baseball program in Connecticut for 25 years that produced former The Kavanagh File Major Leaguer Tim Teufel and NFL Hall-of-Famer Steve Young. (Administrative Appointments) • 2009-Present - Director of Athletics, Florida Gulf Coast University • 1996-2009 - Director of Athletics, Bradley University

A native of Greenwich, Conn., Kavanagh earned his undergraduate degree from Boston College in 1982 and his postgraduate degree from Notre Dame in 1987. Kavanagh is married to the former Mary Gorenz (Maple Park, Ill.) and the couple has five children: daughters the late Megan and Rose (18), as well as sons Mitchell (16) and twins Jack and Quinn (13).

• 1987-96: Rose to Senior Associate Athletic Director, Bowling Green State University • 1985-87 - Graduate Assistant, University of Notre Dame • 1983-85 - Director of Events and Team Travel, Yale University • 1982-83 - Assistant Manager of Contests and Promotions, Yale University

COMPLIANCE The Florida Gulf Coast University Office of Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, institutional employees, community members and boosters about the importance of adhering to NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules. The commitment to compliance ensures insti¬tutional control over the department of athletics. The existence of a successful compliance program depends on the willingness of coaches, administrators, staff, student-athletes and boosters to be cognizant of NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules.

What Is Compliance? At Florida Gulf Coast University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure FGCU’s compliance with all applicable NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective studentathletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents). • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, Atlantic Sun and institutional rules.

Are You A Booster? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports FGCU athletics; • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting FGCU’s athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, studentathletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete’s participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

Once A Booster Always A Booster. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity FOREVER! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with FGCU’s athletics program.

Who Is A Prospective Student-Athlete? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade. Student-athletes enrolled in preparatory schools and twoyear colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent.

Recruiting Do’s And Don’ts Only FGCU coaches may be involved in the recruiting process. Boosters MAY NOT make any recruiting contacts with prospective student-athletes. Boosters are prohibited from the following: • DO NOT telephone, write or make in-person contact with a prospect for recruiting purposes. This includes contact via e-mail, Instant Message, text message, chat rooms, blogs and social networking websites. • DO NOT contact a prospect’s coach, principal or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect. • DO NOT become involved in making arrangements for a prospect, the prospect’s relatives or friends to receive money or financial aid of any kind. • DO NOT visit a prospect’s school to acquire films or transcripts in an attempt to evaluate the prospect’s academic eligibility or athletics ability. • DO NOT have contact with a prospect, their relatives or friends during any of their visits to MSU’s campus. • DO NOT contact student-athletes enrolled in other four-year institutions regarding the possibility of transferring to MSU. Even though there are many rules prohibiting your involvement with pros¬pects and the recruiting process, as a booster you are permitted to do the following: • Notify MSU coaching staff about noteworthy prospects in your area. • Attend a prospect’s athletics event on your own initiative, provided no contact with the prospect, the prospect’s parents or coach occurs. • Continue existing friendships, provided solicitation of a prospect’s enrollment does not occur.

What Is An Extra Benefit? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a FGCU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or cosigning of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing.

What Are The Consequences? FGCU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, FGCU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Atlantic Sun Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the FGCU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or Atlantic Sun Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges).

Questions? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective student-athletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, Atlantic Sun or institutional rules, please contact the Office of Compliance at (239) 590-7573. For more information on compliance and boosters, please visit the Office of Compliance’s website at www.fgcuathletics.com/athletics/compliance/.
