Growing Talent

Students learn in class, but they also need opportunities to gain hands-on experience. Florida International University and the Office of Engagement have worked to develop new learning opportunities for FIU students, giving them the chance to affect the world locally and globally. Are you currently involved in any service learning opportunities?  If so, please let us know.

Two ways the university does this are through service learning and internships.

Service Learning

A teaching method that has seen a major growth in popularity, service learning integrates instruction and classroom study with meaningful and effective community engagement. The combination provides the opportunity for interactive and dynamic learning, teaches civic responsibility and strengthens ties to communities.

Florida International University offers a wide variety of courses and programs that provide students with opportunities to learn more about their field, themselves and their communities.


Workplace experience is often the best teacher. The Office of Engagement works to make such opportunities available via community-involved internships that allow students to gain a hands-on look at their fields and positively affect the community. FIU’s Career Services, in collaboration with the Office of Engagement, has launched an Internship Portal to serve all of our students’ internship needs.
