The FIU Global Strategy 2025 is grounded on three priority areas, one of which is a emphasis on insitutional success. Trickling from this framework are the strategic goals of enhancing FIU's global reputation and strenghtening global instiutional collaborations.
To do so, the Global Strategy Leadership Group, representative of all major university departments and units with an international component, joined forces to highlight FIU's international presence and partners. The analysis shed the light on FIU's comprehensive collaboration with Colombian institutions and organizations.
Whether from a student, faculty research or instutitional lens, relationships between FIU and Colombia as an entity have developed and fortified significantly in the last few years. As demonstrated in the above infographic, associating and promoting FIU involement in and with Colombian entities is a prime consideration for us, as we believe both parties greatly benefit from joining forces in pursuing internationalization efforts.
This page is devoted to showcasing current efforts and established connections with Colombia and will be updated as additional alliances develop.
