Collaborating for the Community

That is where our collaboration with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) comes in, and ACCESS – Achieving Community Collaboration in Education and Student Success – comes to life. As an achievement-oriented partnership, ACCESS has enabled us to align our combined instructional, research and creative talents to improve the academic success of our K-12 students.

Chaired by the Superintendent of M-DCPS and the President of FIU, ACCESS is designed to improve student success in public schools, increase high school graduation and promote students’ transition into higher education. It is made up of 20 strategic workgroups, each with its own unique vision and goals, which are overseen by top leadership from M-DCPS and FIU.
