Gleason Performing Arts Center:

Bridging Campus and Community Through Creativity and Collaboration

Among the first places new Florida Tech students visit for orientation and the last place they see before walking over to the university gymnasium for graduation, Gleason Performing Arts Center has spent its over 55 years as an unobtrusive but essential facet of campus life.

As a host of events, from concerts and lectures to plays and films, the 483-seat venue named after benefactor W. Lansing Gleason, the former Eau Gallie mayor, has also been a key link between the public and Florida Tech.

When it officially opened on Oct. 14, 1967, Gleason was described in publicity materials as “one of the finest and most fully equipped private auditoriums in Brevard County.” Over the years, that distinction continues to strengthen.

After many years of upgrade projects and upgrades. Now hosting near daily events for the campus and community Gleason has become a beacon of artistic development with boundless potential.
