The planning for what would be the tenth university within the State University System began in 1991. Official groundbreaking Florida Gulf Coast University, located in Ft. Myers, was 1995. Envisioning a university that would use technology in learning and teaching to meet emerging higher education needs for the 21st century, Florida Gulf Coast University held its first commencement in May 1998 with 81 graduates. Today FGGU enrolls over 10,000 students and offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
