Export Controls

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 faculty, visiting faculty and scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students, and other employees retained by or working at or for FGCU on U.S. export control laws and regulations.
