Faculty Awards

The President’s Access & Equity Award is presented annually as part of the University’s Recognition Awards Program. The award solicits nominations of individuals who demonstrate efforts exceeding one’s mandated job responsibilities that promote the values of diversity and the importance of equity and inclusion at FIU.

A demonstrated commitment to enhancing diversity university-wide that fosters a culture of inclusion and belonging on campus and/or within the surrounding community, shown leadership through positive interactions among persons of diverse backgrounds, and lived experiences which illustrate commitment to inclusion of persons within and outside of the institution who are members of traditionally under-represented groups.

The Grant-in-Aid Program enables Florida International University employees to take a leave of absence to pursue higher a degree. This grant provides their department with funding for hiring temporary employees to fulfill their duties while they are on leave.
