Founded on the principle that a university can enrich its community, we believe that when the community grows, we all grow. To accomplish that goal, the Office of Engagement reaches out to the community. We build connections. We nuture collaborations. We change lives.
The Office of Engagement is leading the completion of the 2020 Carnegie Community Engaged Re-Classification. In preparation for the application and longer term impact, the Office launched the #FutureIsUs Taskforce in Spring 2018, a 40-member internal engagement advisory taskforce meant to outlive the Carnegie Application. The taskforce will evaluate the long-term impact of community engagement and partnerships at FIU. The #FutureIsUs taskforce is co-chaired by Vice President for Engagement Saif Y. Ishoof and Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Elizabeth Bejar.
