FIU is a public institution that engages in problem-solving research, forges win-win partnerships in our community and prepares our graduates with the skills they need to compete. We are 200,000 graduates strong. Our alumni not only get good jobs but create good jobs.
We are on the cusp of doing even greater things. Our proposed expansion onto land adjacent to the FIU main campus will enhance our ability to create new jobs for the South Florida economy and produce greater student talent in engineering, the sciences, and entrepreneurship - areas that are state priorities and keys to economic development. This initiative is important for our institution and our community. FIU’s success is also our community’s success.
What FIU’s expansion will mean to our community
FIU’s increased capacity will provide a world-class college education to a greater number of young men and women in our community.
An initial economic impact of $1.8 billion and an additional annual recurring economic impact of $541 million to our community, above the $8.9 billion FIU already provides.
Job creation to support FIU’s expanding student population.
No cost to Miami-Dade County or students: FIU will finance the expansion without affecting tuition.
A Vision Of The Future
