FIU Global Affairs unites dedicated teams who share resources, tools and knowledge to enhance FIU’s capacity to bring active understanding, advice, guidance and value to your international study, research, activities and aspirations. The Office of Study Abroad, International Student and Scholar Services as well as the English Language Institute are committed to supporting you at home, abroad, in the classroom, as you grow into global citizens of the 21st century who are uniquely Worlds Ahead. The International Working Group is the institution’s platform for all those who promote global engagement to connect and find ways to synergize our efforts.
In January 2016, our Global Learning for Global Citizenship initiative was recognized with the 2016 IIE Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education. The award distinguishes our Global Learning for Global Citizenship initiative as a best practice for successful campus internationalization. Since 2010 over 142,000 students have completed global learning courses thus far, and careful assessment studies demonstrate that these have significantly increased our students’ global awareness, perspective, and engagement.
We are honored that in 2016 FIU was recognized as a Top Producer of Fulbright Scholars. Also in 2016, we were pleased to welcome the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board to our campus during International Education Week and the Fulbright Program’s 70th Anniversary. More than 40 of our faculty have received grants as Fulbright Scholars and an additional 18 have received grants as specialists. Please see FIU’s Fulbright Resume for more information.
