About Pelican Cove University


Pelican Cove University offers stimulating educational courses taught by Pelican Cove residents who are experts in their fields, either by profession or interest. The University began a few decades ago when retired Professors gave talks in their fields and is governed by residents of Pelican Cove. It has grown significantly over time to include offerings in art, music, craft, interactive discussion, science, history and much more. The development of our own website has enlarged our scope and given PCU the possibility of presenting courses and one-time special events online. PCU is an ever changing and developing undertaking, serving our community.

All classes are taught by volunteer instructors who receive no compensation. Currently classes are scheduled from January through April, with the possibility of classes at other times of the year. PCU’s registration fee allows learners to attend as many classes as they wish. Fees cover the expenses of instructors, the Website, and Zoom and other technologies required for high-quality audio-visual presentations on and offline.

PCU is committed to academic freedom and to the open and respectful exchange of ideas.
