By Mark B. Rosenberg

Florida International University had the rare opportunity this month to inform, and possibly influence, education policy and funding at the national level when U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited FIU and other educational institutions in South Florida.

DeVos chose to visit FIU because she’s aware of the positive things that we are accomplishing through collaboration, innovation and a wide range of educational options.
