Global Strategy Framework

Back in the Fall of 2017, Provost Kenneth G. Furton gave what is now FIU Global the charge of developing an institution-wide global strategy to advance FIU's 1972 visionary founding goal of working towards a "greater international understanding." The Global Strategy Committee (GSC) was formed and consisted of representatives from all academic and multiple administrative units. It carried out extensive research and ensured to align the global strategy with FIU's strategic plan NextHorizon 2025.

The backbone of the global strategy is its framework which highlights that our global priorities are the expansion of our global footprint through institutional, student and faculty success.
