Faculty Inquiry Groups (FIGs) explore innovative instructional methodologies, alternative delivery systems, pilot new instructional methods and implement solutions based on data obtained from their action research projects. They share best practices from these piloted activities and invite input from colleagues.

Faculty who attend conferences and symposiums are welcome to provide input during the FIG sessions.

"Enrolling in the Fire Academy at Hancock was the best decision of my life. I am receiving an amazing education from instructors who have hundreds of years of experience combined. We are able to apply what we learn inside the classroom to real world applications by using the complex's state-of-the-art facilities. There is no doubt in my mind, I will be as prepared as possible to hit the ground running with a fire department after I graduate."

We're Changing
the Odds!
