For nearly 140 years, Florida Memorial University has assessed its environment and made adaptations to strengthen its foundation and uphold its mission and commitment to its students, faculty, staff, and community. This obligation is based on the belief that FMU provides hope and opportunity to thousands of hard-working students and their families who depend on the university to help families increase the quality of their lives.
Today, Florida Memorial University is poised to continue on its rich history and remarkable past as we prepare to chart a new path to an even more bold and powerful future. This year, we welcomed our largest freshman class of over 600 new students, increasing our enrollment to over 1300. We recently introduced new undergraduate and graduate degree programs, opened the Technolij Innovation Center, and continued to play a key role in economic empowerment by graduating over 200 students from the FMU-Miami Construction Trade Program since its inception. The Florida Memorial University aviation program also continues to soar to new heights. Since the program’s inception, more than 500 students have graduated, with 85 percent of them landing jobs in the industry as commercial airline pilots, airport ground, and support staff all over the world.
FMU offers students an intense, rigorous learning experience in a supportive academic community, celebrating the intellectual energy that flows from its diverse student population. As part of their university experience, students gain the critical-thinking and leadership skills necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century. They learn from outstanding faculty who are scholars in their fields, working shoulder-to-shoulder on meaningful research inside and outside the classroom and engaging in service learning that impacts our community and our nation.
