From the very beginning, we’ve played a prominent role in the University’s push for excellence in teaching and research. As FIU continues its trajectory toward recognition as one of the nation’s top urban research universities, we will continue to be in the forefront of this advance. We seek to achieve an innovative and integrated balance between basic science and application in ways that serve the people of Southeast Florida, the state, the nation and the international community by imparting knowledge through outstanding teaching and by creating new knowledge through its strong research programs.
