To promote effective governance practices, Florida Gulf Coast University formally approves and promulgates University policies. Policies are approved by the President in accordance with Policy Number 1.001, Approval and Issuance of University Policies. Policies are approved by the FGCU Board of Trustees in accordance with its bylaws. The links below contain copies of policies that are currently in effect. For historical information or past policies, please contact the General Counsel’s Office.
Once a policy has gone through the development process, the President's Cabinet reviews draft policies which are then disseminated by the Office of the General Counsel to the University community via email and postings on this website. Policies in development are posted to the right. The University community will have 10 days to provide feedback to the Office of the General Counsel. The General Counsel will present the feedback to the President's Cabinet for further review and possible revisions. The draft Policy will then be forwarded to the President for final review and approval.
