FIU was recently named among the top universities in the country in terms of engagement and contributions to its community.
According to recently-released rankings of national universities by Washington Monthly, FIU placed 17th out of 279 higher education institutions, up from 24th last year. Achieving a top 20 ranking in Washington Monthly by 2020 is one of the goals of the FIU Beyond Possible 2020 strategic plan.
“At FIU we obsess on impact. We have the obligation to leave our community better than we found it, one student, one initiative at a time,” said FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg. “We value our community and want it to get better every day. Our faculty and staff believe in better and we practice it every day. We are willing to take responsibility for leading this improvement. The results speak for themselves but there is more to do!”
