Florida International University is committed to provide the highest quality educational and employment experience to its students, faculty, and staff in a nurturing and supportive environment. In doing so, the institution is committed to ensuring that instruction and services are delivered in a manner that is reflective and supportive of diversity as it relates to gender, socioeconomic status, gender identity, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, nationality, military status, sexual orientation, spirituality and cultural identity.

We commit ourselves to building an academic community whose members represent and embrace diverse cultures, background and life experiences that reflect the multicultural nature of South Florida and the Global Society. Our goal is to build an intellectually vibrant climate that sustains the inclusiveness and engagement of our diverse community.

We encourage and expect the entire FIU community to model the values as expressed in this mission and to commit to recruit, retain, and support students, faculty, and staff who reflect the diversity of our global society.
