FIU as a Catalyst: Advancing Solutions, Creating the Future STEM Workforce and Strengthening our Regional Economy

FIU’s Washington Office of Federal Relations works to advance our university’s mission and priorities in our nation’s capital. With critical decisions being made at the federal level that impact our students’ financial aid, research enterprise, international engagements and our ability to fulfill our role as an urban leader in the South Florida region, we’re engaged year-round so that FIU can remain WorldsAhead.

In promoting our federal priorities to our champions on Capitol Hill, The White House and federal agencies, our team also engages our most effective advocates: our students, faculty researchers and alumni. Together we can all work to increase federal support of FIU and its initiatives, and while doing so, expand our national and international profile.

As Washington, D.C. is also home to a growing population of incoming students and FIU alumni, we’re glad to serve as an important connection between our Miami campuses and our growing Golden Panther network.
