FGCU Renaissance Academy Hosts Moderated Discussion Group on "American Power, Peace and Prosperity"

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Renaissance Academy, Florida Gulf Coast University's (FGCU) adult lifelong learning and enrichment program, will host a moderated discussion group series on "American Power, Peace and Prosperity" led by Dr. Judith Gates, former educator and professor at the University of Durham, UK.

From both international and national perspectives, the discussion group will consider the key aspects of power, peace, and prosperity and ask if America can have them all, now and in the future. This trilogy of topics is structured to be a connected program, but each session can also stand alone. The series will be offered at the FGCU Naples Center, 1010 5th Ave. South, Naples on Jan. 21, Feb. 18, and Mar. 18 at 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Online registration and additional information is available at or by calling (239) 425-3272.

The Renaissance Academy offers affordable, non-credit single lectures, short courses, day trips, computer classes, film series, life enrichment classes and other programs. There are no exams, grades or homework, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors and peers.

For more information or a free catalog of offerings, contact The Renaissance Academy at (239) 425-3272.
