A brief description of the policies and/or programs:

The College's Off-Campus Studies Department does offer information regarding Green Passports and carbon offsets. However, the majority of the program's take care of flight information and policies for their participants. However, Gettysburg College does coordinated a select few flights for their students which reduces the trip's overall carbon footprint (ex. the Lancaster, England program).
