What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

The diversity of students, faculty, staff. FIU has a special culture; it is not like any other institution and it has the feeling of being part of a family. I appreciate the fact that there are opportunities for making a career at FIU and there are opportunities for advancing if you are good at your job. Also, there is a willingness to make things work and try to resolve issues (even by adapting current policy).
