Does the institution have a local offsets program through which the institution seeks to offset its greenhouse gas emissions by implementing projects that reduce GHG emissions in the local community?:
Yes

A brief description of the program:

During our annual Going Green Tampa Bay EXPO, held in 2009 jointly with the Campus and Community Sustainability Conference (co-organized by USF and Sustainable Florida, Collins Center), we identified a neighborhood in East Tampa and worked with homeowners to plant hundreds of trees to offset the GHG emissions from this event. For more details, see http://www.sustainablefloridaconference.org.
