Status Update: 11 a.m., Sept. 22

FGCU is providing space for FEMA and the State of Florida to open a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) for the community

The DRC opened today, and its news release with information is pasted below.  Please note that the DRC is operating from FGCU's Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI), which is NOT located on our main campus.  Our folks put together directions should you receive inquiries from the community, as we started receiving some yesterday from people thinking the Disaster Recovery Center is located on our main campus.  Other than providing general information on the DRC's operating hours and the directions to the DRC at FGCU's ETI, specific inquiries about DRC's registration process for disaster recovery can be directed to the FEMA Helpline telephone number highlighted in the news release.

Here are the directions should you need them:

Directions to FGCU's Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI) – Location of Disaster Recovery Center (DRC):
- Take Route I-75 to Alico Road (CR 840) Exit 128.
- Go East on Alico Road (CR 840).
- Go East 2 miles on Alico Road (CR 840) (from the intersection at Ben Hill Griffin Parkway).
- Go past Airport Haul Road ( on left) and make a left at the next street, Innovation Lane (which may not have a sign).
- Go down 500 ft. to the back of the development and you will see a large white building on your right.

FEMA/State Disaster Recovery Center Opens in Lee County for Florida Survivors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) will open Friday, Sept. 22 in Lee County to help Florida storm survivors.

The DRC will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week until further notice.

The DRC is at the following address: Location: Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI) 16301 Innovation Lane Fort Myers, FL 33913

As more centers open, survivors may locate one near them at https://www.fema.gov/disaster-recovery-centers or by calling FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. That information is also available on the FEMA Mobile App.

The registration process is the first step in recovery and requires information such as insurance policies, and bank information for possible direct transfer of funds. Survivors are urged to register before visiting a DRC. To register, go online to www.DisasterAssistance.gov or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621- 3362. Help is available in most languages and phone lines are open 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) seven days a week until further notice.

If you have phone and/or internet access, you may register in one of the following ways: · Online at DisasterAssistance.gov. · Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for voice, 711 and Video Relay Service (VRS). If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability and use a TTY, call 800-462-7585. · Download the FEMA Mobile App and apply.

Survivors requiring a reasonable accommodation such as American Sign Language interpreting, Braille, large print, etc., while visiting a DRC may call the Helpline number for support at 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Help is available in most languages, and information on the registration process is available in ASL at: fema.gov/medialibrary/assets/videos/111546.

Disaster Survivor Assistance (DSA) crews are canvassing affected areas and are able to register survivors for FEMA assistance, if needed. When residents require further assistance, the teams may refer them to a DRC.

If already registered, it is not necessary to visit a DRC.

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.

Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.

For more information on the Florida recovery, visit fema.gov/hurricane-irma.

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-FEMA (3362). For TTY call 800-462-7585.

FEMA's temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.


Status Update: 12 p.m., Sept. 20

Today we held our final Hurricane Irma meeting of President Martin and the Emergency Advisory Council, and there are a few updates from that meeting:

  • Lutgert Hall Roof, and Campus Light Poles:  The roof on Lutgert Hall needs some major repairs which are cosmetic in nature.  There is no water leakage.  A temporary pedestrian bridge is being constructed with scaffolding above it so that the repairs can be made.  Also, approximately 60 of the decorative globes on campus light poles were destroyed by the hurricane; replacements have been ordered, and will be installed when received.
  • FEMA Disaster Recovery Center:  FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers are being put in place to serve the public in storm affected areas, and FGCU will be providing space for such a Center at our Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI).  FEMA will announce the hours and details when the Center opens, and I'll include this information in the daily emails which provide information on electricity and water restoration; availability of food and water; making disaster claims, etc.
  • Commencement Ceremonies on Saturday, December 16:  Planning for the Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, December 16 are under way.  Details should be finalized for release next week.
  • Revised Academic Calendar:  A tentative revised academic calendar for the fall semester is available on the Registrar's webpage, with the note "Updates in Progress.  Check Frequently."  The final revised academic calendar will be posted next week.  
  • Volunteer Opportunities in the Community:  As our campus and operations get back to normal, there are volunteer needs and opportunities in the greater communities FGCU serves.  We've been pleased to shelter community evacuees in Alico Arena, Lutgert Hall, and Marieb Hall, and to support citizens with our Emergent Technologies Institute space for the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center.  We encourage FGCU clubs and organizations, as well as individuals, to volunteer and make donations where possible.  For details on community needs for volunteers and donations, the information pasted below has been compiled by FGCU's Office of Service Learning.

It's great to see students back on campus for classes today, and faculty and staff here supporting them.  We recognize that not everyone in the FGCU family has electricity, water and other services restored at their homes, and are hopeful that life as you knew it pre-Irma will be restored soon!  I wish there was space here to highlight our many employees whose work has been heroic and hard and heartfelt in support of our FGCU and greater communities since before and after Hurricane Irma hit.  The campus today truly shows their successful efforts, as do the many lives they touched. 

GO EAGLES!

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Housing Residents:

Many housing residents have returned. Classes will start on Wednesday. Our department continues to work on repairs and cleanup. This work will continue for the next several weeks. We are aware of all major water intrusion issues and we have begun those repairs where needed. If you find an issue in your room that requires attention, please complete a work order as soon as possible. You can do so by:

  • Logging into the Housing Web Portal via Gulfline. 
  • Once in the Housing Web Portal, click on the "Submit a Maintenance Request" link. 
  • On the maintenance request page, you will find links to Submit a General Work Order and a First Time Requester Guide. Please follow the instructions from there.

We are aware of a few telecommunications issues on campus that we are working to resolve quickly. If you have an internet or cable TV issue, please report it to your front desk immediately. Known issues include:

  • Internet service is inoperable in Honors Building and Building O in NLV
  • Panther Hall in WLV is without both cable and internet
  • There are some reports of cable TV not working in North Lake Village. If you are having issues, please report them to the front desk. 

Cleanup remains throughout campus. There remains a lot of debris in North Lake Village. Please avoid any debris, as it will still take us the next few days to get everything cleaned up. Also, please avoid the barricaded areas of the boardwalk. These areas are unsafe and walking on or near them could cause more erosion leading to more structural damage in these areas.

If you have individual questions, please contact our office at (239) 590-1700 or at housing@fgcu.edu.

 
Sincerely,

Dr. Brian Fisher
Director, Office of Housing and Residence Life


General Status Update: 1 p.m., Sept. 18

Updates from President Martin and the Emergency Advisory Council:

  • Soft Reopening Today and Tuesday for Faculty and Staff:  All faculty and staff whose hurricane circumstances allow them to come to campus should report for work today and Tuesday (September 19) to prepare for classes and normal operations.  The campus is functioning properly with electricity and Internet access in all buildings, and storm debris in the roadways has been cleared.
  • Reopening Wednesday (September 20) for Classes and Normal Operations:  The University will reopen for classes and normal operations on Wednesday (September 20).  This includes all in-person and online classes.  (No classes are being held today or tomorrow.)
  • Library Reopening with Modified Hours for Today and Tuesday:  The FGCU Library reopened today, with modified hours for today and tomorrow (September 19) of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Regular Library hours will resume on Wednesday.  We ask everyone to have patience as we bring back online University buildings and services, recognizing that some of our faculty and staff still do not have restored electricity, water, etc. at their homes.
  • Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, December 16:  Commencement ceremonies will be held on Saturday, December 16 for fall graduating students.  Please note that this will not be the traditional format in Alico Arena with all graduates in one ceremony, but instead will be smaller ceremonies organized by each College for its respective graduates.  Provost Toll and the Deans are working out details for the ceremonies, and when available these details will be announced.  We continue to appreciate your patience as we work through many issues in the hurricane's aftermath.
  • Laundry Facilities:  Employees and students without functional washing machines/dryers at home are welcome to use the laundry facilities at North Lake Village student housing until further notice.  There are 40 coin-operated washers and dryers in the complex.  Employees, please have your FGCU ID card with you.
  • Students returning to South Village, North Lake Village, and West Lake Village:  Residential students who evacuated have begun returning to student housing in South Village, North Lake Village, and West Lake Village.  Front desk operations for all three complexes are on regular operating schedules as of today, and RAs are in place.

General Status Update: Noon, Sept. 16

More progress forward today for the campus, and information on Commencement ceremony for fall graduating students:

  • West Lake Village Student Housing Power Restored:  This morning, electricity was restored to West Lake Village student housing, and the units are coming back online!  Our Housing staff now is walking all the residences to review functionality.  Residential students, please check your Housing communication as it contains detailed information about when the units will reopen today for those in town.
  • Library Reopening with Modified Hours for Monday and Tuesday:  The FGCU Library will reopen on Monday (September 18) and Tuesday (September 19) with modified hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Regular Library hours will resume on Wednesday.  We ask everyone to have patience as we bring back online University buildings and services.
  • Alico Arena Shelter:  The approximately 600 citizens (and their pets) who have been sheltered in Alico Arena since before the hurricane were relocated this morning to another shelter in Lee County.  As you would imagine, the vacated Arena needs deep cleaning, and this process immediately began with our crews.
  • Commencement Ceremony:  Yesterday's announcement about the revised schedule for the fall semester included cancellation of the Commencement ceremony on December 16.  Please note that we are considering all options to find a way to celebrate our graduates in a way that works for as many people as possible.  At this time, no final decisions on how we will do this have been made.  We appreciate your patience as all aspects of the hurricane aftermath are continuously and rapidly evolving.

We know that many of our faculty, staff and off-campus students remain without power and other basic services, and fervently hope that the positive occurrences on campus today will be yours very soon!

General Status Update: 4:15 p.m., Sept. 15

  • Academic Calendar and Requirements:  Provost Toll, FGCU's Deans, and Faculty Senate President Mike McDonald presented to President Martin a recommended revised schedule for the fall semester to make up lost academic time, and President Martin has accepted the recommendation.  UPDATE:  Here is the information on the revised fall semester:
    • The Council of Deans, leadership from the Division of Academic Affairs, the Registrar, and Faculty Senate President Dr. Michael McDonald held a conference call earlier this week to discuss possible revisions to the academic calendar, necessitated by the extended storm closure of university operations.  Two plans were developed and collectively endorsed, dependent on the actual restart date for university classes.  Now that the restart date for all classes has been determined, the plan for the academic calendar is as follows. 
    • All classes, including day, evening, and distance learning, will resume on Wednesday September 20th. 
    • To compensate for the loss of nine (9) regular weekday instructional days, plus Saturdays, we will extend the academic calendar by using the period from Thursday, December 7th through Tuesday, December 19th for all regular classes (day, night, distance, and Saturday).  The conformation of this block of days allows for each day's classes to remain on the same day of the week (i. e. Wednesday classes remain on Wednesday, etc., etc.). 
    • The five (5) originally scheduled exam days (December 11 to December 15) will be reduced to no more than 3.5 days, beginning Wednesday, December 20th. 
    • The Commencement ceremony, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 16th, has been canceled.  There is a possibility that we will be able to reschedule the Commencement ceremony for Saturday January 6th.  This determination will be made as soon as possible. 
    • With these changes to the fall semester, the spring semester will not experience any changes, i. e., all classes will begin on Monday, January 8th, as originally planned, and the semester will proceed as now shown on the published FGCU calendar.
  • FGCU Soft Reopening for Employees (Monday, September 18): 
    • All faculty and staff whose hurricane circumstances allow them to come to campus should report for work starting on Monday, September 18.  This soft reopening will allow available faculty and staff to prepare for classes and normal operations.
    • A limited number of campus food services will be open when you return to work on Monday.  UPDATE:  They are as follow: 
    • Dining for Monday and Tuesday:
      • Dunkin' Donuts:  8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
      • Boar's Head Deli:  11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
      • SoVi (modified hours):  Breakfast 8:30 to 9:30 am.  Lunch 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Dinner 4:30 to 6 p.m.   (NOTE: Modified hours for SoVi will remain in effect through Wednesday.)
      • Returning students, faculty, and staff can utilize their meal plans or cash beginning Monday.
  • Curfews:  Most curfews in the region have been lifted, and those remaining may be removed prior to Monday's soft reopening.  UPDATE:  Lee County Emergency Management has announced the following revisions to the three curfews that remain in place:  The curfew that was implemented post-Irma has been revised.  The amended hours are midnight to 6 a.m. daily.​  ​This applies to the Village of Estero, the City of Bonita Springs, and the area within the Lehigh Acres Fire District.  
  • Family Resource Center:  A subsequent update later today will provide the status on the Family Resource Center (FRC).  UPDATE:  Parents of Family Resource Center children are being contacted directly with information on status and plans.

General Status Update: 1:15 p.m., Sept. 15

We continue to address and deal with a number of moving parts in a very fluid situation, but decisions have been made regarding the University's reopening as indicated here:

  • FGCU Hard Reopening for Classes (Wednesday, September 20): 
    • The University will reopen for classes on Wednesday, September 20.  This includes in-person classes and online classes.  As such, there will be NO in-person or online classes held on Monday, September 18 or Tuesday, September 19.
    • There will be no special events on campus until Wednesday.  As a reminder, please do NOT cancel an FGCU class, event or activity scheduled for Wednesday or beyond without advance approval from your unit's respective vice president.
    • The Aquatics Center will remain closed until Wednesday.
    • Operations at FGCU's Naples Center, and Charlotte County Herald Court remain closed until further notice.  Employees based there should follow the below instructions for the soft reopening on Monday, where possible.
  • FGCU Soft Reopening for Employees (Monday, September 18): 
    • All faculty and staff whose hurricane circumstances allow them to come to campus should report for work starting on Monday, September 18.
    • This soft reopening will allow available faculty and staff to prepare for classes and normal operations.
    • Electricity and Internet access are functioning normally on campus, with the exception of West Lake Village student housing, and the Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI).  Additional information will be forthcoming from Housing staff regarding a short-term response for West Lake Village residents if the power is not restored there soon.  (As a reminder, our Student Housing staff is communicating directly with all residential students from West Lake Village, North Lake Village, and South Village as to status and plans.  Residential students, please check your Housing communications for the most current information.)
    • A limited number of campus food services will be open when you return to work on Monday.  Later today I'll send information on which ones will be open.
    • Those employees who due to hurricane circumstances are unable to return to work for the soft reopening will be on paid administrative leave for Monday and Tuesday, followed by use of annual leave starting on Wednesday, as applicable.
    • Most curfews in the region have been lifted, and those remaining may be removed prior to Monday's soft reopening.  However, if there remains an issue regarding night classes that start up on Wednesday and beyond, we will address it as soon as information warrants.
    • As faculty and staff return to your individual offices, please let Physical Plant know if there are any hurricane-related problems in your office or suite.  You may do this by sending an email through the Work Management Center at wmc@fgcu.edu or by calling 590-1370.  (Please do not email the entire Physical Plant department as they continue to work on multiple situations left by the hurricane.)
    • The technology in almost all of the classrooms so far has been checked and found to be in working order.
    • A subsequent update later today will provide the status on the Family Resource Center (FRC).
  • Academic Calendar and Requirements:  Provost Toll, FGCU's Deans, and Faculty Senate President Mike McDonald have presented to President Martin a recommended revised schedule for the fall semester to make up lost academic time, and President Martin has accepted the recommendation.  I will send this detailed information to you later this afternoon, but wanted to get out as soon as possible the reopening decisions.
  • Campus Clearing and Cleanup:  Clearing of downed trees and other storm debris continues today on campus, with uprooted trees being replanted where possible. 
  • Alico Arena Shelter:  Alico Arena continues to shelter members of the general public who have been displaced by the hurricane. 
  • U.S. Mail Delivery:  Today we received a large amount of U.S. Mail delivered to campus for the first time since the storm.  Our staff is working diligently to sort the mail, and it should be delivered to campus offices starting on Wednesday.
  • Local Driving Safety:  Roads to and throughout Lee County and beyond remain jammed in some places, and some of Lee County's traffic signals still are non-functioning.  If you are out driving, please be careful and remember that intersections without operating traffic signals are to be treated as four-way stops.

President Martin Update: 3 p.m., Sept. 14

President Martin and the FGCU Emergency Advisory Council met today, and as indicated in the last update, there are many moving parts to this very fluid situation here on the ground, and we are taking all these factors into consideration as we make decisions about going forward. 

Here are updates from today's meeting of the emergency team:

  • FGCU Reopening:  As indicated yesterday, we are trying very hard to reopen the University for classes and business operations starting on Monday, September 18.  However, given the fluidity of this weather event that has impacted our entire region and beyond, it may be necessary to delay that reopening.  While our campus did not sustain major damage to buildings and we do have electricity, the ability for students, faculty and staff to be in place on Monday also is a consideration.  At this time, the plan is for FGCU to reopen on Monday (September 18).  However, tomorrow (Friday, September 15) at 1 p.m., we will announce if this will occur, or if an additional delay will be needed.  We will provide an update immediately after tomorrow's meeting of our emergency team. 

  • Soft Opening on Monday:  A new note from today regarding a soft reopening:  Regardless of whether we can reopen for classes on Monday (September 18), President Martin would like all faculty and staff who are able to make their way to campus to plan to be back at work on Monday as a soft opening to prepare for classes and normal operations.
  • Academic Calendar and Requirements:  Provost Toll, FGCU's Deans, and Faculty Senate President Mike McDonald met by conference call today to further discuss various scheduling scenarios related to making up lost class time.  I will update you as soon as the final decision is made tomorrow afternoon.  Again, there are many moving parts, but our folks are doing everything possible to meet President Martin's charge to maximize as much as possible for this semester the full educational experience our students deserve.
  • Campus Functionality:  Clearing of downed trees and other storm debris continues today on campus.  Campus utilities, including electricity and Internet access, are fully functioning EXCEPT FOR at West Lake Village student housing, and the Emergent Technologies Institute (ETI).  We are exploring all options for our 500 West Lake Village students.  Our Student Housing staff is communicating directly with all residential students (West Lake Village, North Lake Village, and South Village) as to status and plans.  Residential students, please check your Housing communications for the most current information. 
  • Alico Arena Shelter:  Alico Arena continues to shelter members of the general public who have been displaced by the hurricane.  We currently have 565 people sheltered in Alico Arena.  While some people previously sheltered in the Arena have been able to go home, others have found their homes unlivable and have returned.  The American Red Cross remains on site along with our Facilities staff, and members of the University Police Department.  The National Guard troops previously staying in the Arena moved out today to handle other duties elsewhere.  As indicated yesterday, there no longer are sheltered evacuees in Lutgert and Marieb Halls, and these facilities have been deep cleaned.
  • U.S. Mail Delivery:  At this point, there remains no delivery of U.S. Mail to campus.
  • Local Driving Safety:  Roads to and throughout Lee County and beyond remain jammed in many places with people out looking for gas and supplies.  Approximately 50% of Lee County's traffic signals still are non-functioning.  If you are out driving, please be careful and remember that intersections without operating traffic signals are to be treated as four-way stops.
  • Volunteering:  Employees and students have signed up to volunteer if needed on campus.  At this time, these needs are being met by employees and contractors.  We are seeking information about external opportunities for volunteering and will provide that contact information when available.

Attn: FGCU Faculty/Staff - please get complete details via campus email.
