Mount Holyoke College recognizes the importance of complying with all U.S. export control regulations and is committed to full compliance with these regulations.
This Policy extends to the entire College community. Specifically, the following areas will be most affected by Export Controls:
- All College research and academic programs which a) conduct activities with international scope, or b) conduct research utilizing specialized instruments or materials.
- College operational and business functions including, but not limited to, Human Resources, Facility Management, Library/Information/Technology Services, Study Abroad, EH&S, Grants/Sponsored Research, Purchasing-Accounts Payable, and others.
All members of the College community, including faculty, students, and staff, are responsible for complying with this policy.
All members of the College community must comply with U.S. export control regulations and adhere to College procedures established to maintain institutional compliance with such regulations.
No member of the College community may engage in any activity, or commit the College to engage in any activity, that violates U.S. export control laws and regulations. Specifically, personnel may not:
- Export commodities, software, or technology subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), except as authorized by the U.S. Department of Commerce;
- Export hardware, technical data, or services subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), except as authorized by the U.S. Department of State;
- Engage in transactions subject to restriction under the Foreign Assets Control Regulations, except as authorized by the U.S. Department of the Treasury; or
- Violate any other U.S. export control law or regulation.
Community members involved in research and academic projects that are subject to export controls must follow the procedures that are appropriate for the roles they serve. These individuals are responsible for reviewing the materials on the College's export controls website and consulting the Export Controls Task Force when export controls apply.
