What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

Every day, our FIU family makes miracles happen for thousands of families in our community, many of whom believe deeply in the American dream and just want a shot at a university education to make those dreams a reality. For me - and so many others at our FIU - our work is about the many wonderful people who surround us and inspire us to do better. And it's so meaningful because it's always been about changing our students' lives.

Employee Comment

It is clear that everyone from the President, the administration to the faculty and staff, genuinely cares about the education, welfare and success of our students. We are valued, and respected for the contributions we make to the mission of the university.
