A Message from President Dr. Kenneth A. Jessell

FIU, Miami's first and only public research university, is a window into the future of higher education and research innovation. Recently ranked Carnegie top-tier status, our faculty researchers and students are tackling some of the world's greatest challenges of our time.

Be it transportation infrastructure, our fragile environment, STEM Education, or minority health disparities, FIU has already developed an influential voice in the national dialogue. We aim to make that voice even stronger here in our nation's capital.

Our solutions center in Washington, D.C., is one that brings together faculty, students, alumni, policy-makers, and thought leaders. In this knowledge community, ideas will collide, relationships will form, and lives will be transformed as we contribute to the university's life of the mind.

We invite you to partner with us as our FIU strives to unleash our Worlds Ahead talent and solutions to serve the greater good.

Dr. Kenneth A. Jessell 

Why Washington, D.C.?

As the center of domestic, foreign and scientific policy, our nation’s capital is critical to the rise of FIU’s research innovation enterprise. The university’s standing and international reach also benefit from corporations, media outlets, think tanks, and foreign governments active in Washington. And as our 2,000 driven and empowered alumni in the capital region prove, this is a strong market for impactful jobs and leadership opportunities.
