About PCU

Pelican Cove University offers stimulating educational courses taught by Pelican Cove residents who are experts in their fields, either by profession or interest. 

Pelican Cove University (PCU) began nearly four decades ago when retired professors in the community gave talks in their fields. It has grown significantly since then 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. We are governed by residents of Pelican Cove.

All classes are taught by volunteer instructors who receive no compensation. Classes are scheduled from January through March, 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 PCU website, 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. It is an ever-changing project serving our community.
