At FIU, the Future Is Us

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 nurture partnerships. We change lives.

But community engagement is larger than us. It’s about all the great things you do. That’s why we need your help. FIU’s designation as a Carnegie Engaged University relies on demonstrating our commitment to the community. By sharing your efforts with us, we continue to earn that prestigious title — recognizing and honoring the hard work you do to make the community a better place.

If you’re doing something great, let us know. We want the world to know about the work you’re doing to ensure that the #FutureIsUs.

Carnegie Community Engagement Classification

Since 2011, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has recognized FIU for our commitment to collaboration with our community. The Office of Engagement is responsible for documenting the work our university does to demonstrate our dedication to the the South Florida community and beyond. The next evaluation cycle for Carnegie Classification takes place in 2018.
