It’s FIU Day! University community to advocate for FIU in Tallahassee and at home

February 7, 2018 at 12:00am

Today is FIU Day in Tallahassee!

Members of the FIU community – including students, faculty, alumni and members of the FIU Board of Trustees – will be in the capital, advocating for FIU’s 2018 legislative priorities and thanking the university’s legislative delegation for their continued support of FIU.

Members of the Florida legislature, which includes six FIU alumni, have been extremely supportive of FIU’s priorities and have helped FIU grow and thrive into one of our community’s anchor institutions.
