Campus internationalization since our beginning
Thinking, being and acting with an international mindset is in our DNA because it was put into FIU's cradle at its founding. Next to "educating our students" and providing "service to our community," the goal of fostering "greater international understanding" was equally important from the beginning. The historic plaque, firmly and prominently installed on the wall of the first building (Primera Casa) on our main campus, reminds us of this since 1972.
Ever since, our students, faculty, staff, alumni and the entire University community have pledged a staunch commitment to being global citizens.
