Does the institution have policies and/or programs in place to reduce emissions from air travel?:

A brief description of the policies and/or programs:

FGCU president enacted travel restrictions and approval guidelines in November 2009 primarily due to the state's fiscal crisis.

All university travel must be approved by the president or by one of the president's direct reports as critical to the university's mission. From the president's memo to his direct reports, "While there are occasions and events which will require individuals to travel, all university travel should be carefully reviewed to determine whether meetings can be convened or attended using technology, as well as whether the travel is necessary at this time or can be postponed."
