Located in Southwest Florida between the Florida Everglades and the Gulf of Mexico, we offer an exceptional environment for learning. Half of our 800 acres is preserved or restored nature. Our campus and region serve as a living laboratory where life-enhancing discoveries are made. We’re an incubator for entrepreneurs who fuel economic development and a cultural resource that enriches life on and around campus. Our sports teams energize the entire region. Inspiring those who inspire others — that’s The FGCU Effect.

Florida Gulf Coast University’s comprehensive undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students to excel and innovate. Our students, alumni, faculty and staff are actively engaged and environmentally conscious citizens. They serve their communities and inspire others by leading, doing and making a difference.

Faculty members represent a diverse collection of scholars and researchers with a strong commitment to teaching and service. Unlike most universities, we do not have a tenure system so faculty members work on multi-year contracts. And, because the university is relatively young, it tends to attract professors with entrepreneurial spirits, those who are excited by the prospect of creating new programs and initiatives that benefit students and the community.
