Creating a Strong Community Together
At Florida International University, community engagement has been part of our identity since the very beginning. Since our founding, we have been committed to collaborative engagement with our local and global communities. Over 50 years later, and our FIU family is still dedicated to making a difference in and serving those same communities. FIU's Office of Engagement serves as a partner in collaboration to its community, faculty, and students. Through community partnerships, public private partnerships, multi-stakeholder coalitions, and leading in assists, the Office of Engagement is able to work with its stakeholders and unite collective resources to embrace the most complex challenges in the community and create impact, hope and opportunity.
What is engagement?
Collaborative, triple-win interactions between the University and community and related scholarship for the mutually beneficial exchange, exploration, and application of knowledge, information, and resources to create solutions to the pressing challenges of our global community. Triple-win ensures engagement supports transformation of the community as a whole through measurable impact on our partners and ourselves.
