The Water School

Leading the way toward solutions

The comprehensive nature of The Water School at FGCU allows us to focus on key areas critical to our water-driven world: Climate Change, Natural Resources, Ecosystem Health and Well-Being, Restoration, and Remediation.

With 400 acres of protected habitat and LEED-certified buildings, FGCU is an environmental lab with sustainability at the core of its mission. Our award-winning initiatives in education, energy production, research and sustainable practices make us one of the nation's greenest campuses - the perfect place to develop The Water School at FGCU.
