Welcome to the Renaissance Academy of Florida Gulf Coast University.

FGCU Renaissance Academy

Its name invokes historical times of great intellectual and creative energy.

Its programs make possible in the present lifelong personal revitalization through learning, creativity, and social engagement.

Founded in January 2001, the Academy is the University’s and region’s premier lifelong learning program for adults.

It is based on the premise that learning should never cease, that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active fundamentally enriches and invigorates our lives.

Among the Renaissance Academy’s offerings are affordable, non-credit single lectures, short courses, day trips, computer classes, film series, life enrichment classes, writing workshops, music lessons, travel abroad programs and other special events providing academic substance in an interactive format that encourages the exchange of ideas and provides both intellectual stimulation and personal enjoyment.

There are no exams or grades, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors and peers! To those of you who have been with us before, and to those who have yet to discover the joys of participating in the Renaissance Academy, we extend an enthusiastic invitation to join us
