Florida International University

Founded in 1965, Florida International University (FIU) is one of Florida’s 12 state universities and Miami’s first and only four-year public research university. FIU has been locally and globally engaged for over five decades, helping devise solutions to some of the most challenging problems of our time. FIU is Carnegie-designated as both a research university with highest research activity and a community-engaged university. The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. In 2013 FIU was again named one of the world’s top 100 universities founded in the past 50 years, as ranked by The Times Higher Education. It is one of only eight such named universities in the U.S. and the only university in Florida to make the list. 

Located at the crossroads of the Americas, FIU is one of the 10 largest public research universities in the nation, with a student body primarily comprised of first and second generation immigrant students, two-thirds of whom are from Latin America. No other U.S. university awards more degrees to Hispanic students. With more than 55,000 students and over 200,000 graduates – 125,000 of whom reside and work in South Florida – FIU is an anchor institution in the region, providing access to higher education and fueling the workforce of our community.
