A Strategic Plan
This planning process kicks off during an era of unparalleled success in FIU history. In 2023, The Wall Street Journal ranked FIU the fourth-best public university in the country. Our four-year graduation rate surpassed 60 percent, a national benchmark of excellence. Our world-renowned faculty exceeded $300 million in research expenditure.
We must continue to work intentionally and with a strategic focus to carry on the incredible work that has helped FIU become a leader in student success and research excellence and an anchor institution powering economic and social mobility far beyond South Florida.
In preparing for this process, we have identified three preliminary pillars: The FIU Experience, Research Excellence, and Mission-Aligned Engagement and Partnerships. We have also identified three initial areas of strategic focus: Health, Environment and Environmental Resilience, and Innovation.
