ENGAGING THE WORLD BY CONNECTING OUR WORLD
In 2016, as part of our award-winning Global Learning for Global Citizenship initiative, FIU identified a need to provide new pathways for faculty and students to engage in the process of global learning online. Our search led us to Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), a powerful form of virtual exchange pioneered by the SUNY COIL Center.
FIU established the Office of Collaborative Online International Learning (FIU COIL) in January 2021. FIU COIL's mission is to enable all FIU students and faculty to engage with their diverse peers worldwide in collaborative teaching, learning, research, and innovation online. Through a variety of recruiting, matching, training, and sustaining initiatives, FIU COIL is building a global network of global learners working together to understand and solve our world's most pressing problems.
