Is the institution recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation's Tree Campus USA program?:

A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:

In order to be recognized as a Tree Campus USA University, FGCU had to complete an application process which included meeting five standards developed by the Arbor Day Foundation. These standards are designed to promote student involvement on campus.

A committee was formed consisting of students, faculty, staff, and members of the surrounding community to develop the Tree Campus Plan and complete the application for entrance into the program. After much deliberation, FGCU was accepted as an official Tree Campus university on January 9, 2010.

The committee will continue to meet throughout the year to discuss ways to implement and improve the original Tree Campus Plan.

To help qualify for the Tree Campus USA program, a conservation map was created by Johnson Engineering that provides a detailed description of the wetlands and uplands on the FGCU campus.
