FIU is playing a key role in educating the next generation of highly-skilled cybersecurity practitioners to protect and safeguard important data, systems, and networks. Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) selected FIU’s Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy as a partner to host the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Conference and Expo on Nov. 6 – 7, 2018, in Miami.
For the first time in its history, FIU is ranked as one of the top 100 public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The ranking represents a 22 spot improvement among public universities. The number 100 ranking 2019 Best Colleges comes on the heels of FIU placing number two among public universities in the state, according to the Florida Board of Governors’ performance metrics.
Green School students were among the largest group of FIU interns who worked and lived in Washington, D.C. this summer. Students got to meet governmental officials, go bowling at the White House and attend D.C. events. Some of these students also connected their experiences with academics by taking courses like Effective Governmental Communication, taught by Brian Fonseca, the director of the Green School's Jack D. Gordon Institute. Learn more by clicking on the link above.
