Dorian is one of the strongest hurricanes on record and it is currently bearing down on the Bahamas. We still don’t know the full effects of the hurricane on the Bahamas or how it will impact our fellow Floridians and others up the east coast.

The university is activating FIUstrong to help assist FIU students, faculty and staff who may be experiencing hardship as a result of Dorian’s ravaging effects.
