Academic Freedom is a guiding principle for FGCU. It is the foundation for the transmission and advancement of knowledge. The university vigorously protects freedom of inquiry and expression and categorically expects civility and mutual respect to be practiced in all deliberations.
Export controls present a unique challenge to universities – balancing one’s academic freedom while maintaining national security and economic vitality.
FGCU is committed to educating its personnel, including employees, faculty, visiting faculty and scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students and other persons retained by or working at or for FGCU on U.S. export control laws and regulations. As part of our ongoing commitment to export control compliance and education, we have established this export controls website that contains university export control information, key contacts, definitions, access to training modules and other reference materials.
This website is designed to provide an overview of export controls that are relevant to a university setting and to help you obtain assistance with questions related to export controls.
