Our Commitment to Excellence
FIU Online is committed to finding new, innovative ways to lift barriers and increase access to quality education. In 2016, FIU Online developed the Affordability Counts program, an initiative aimed at reducing the cost of textbooks and materials to less than $60 per course. Through the program, student savings is nearly $79 per course, and the average spend for materials in Affordability Counts certified courses is $21. Piloted at FIU, the Affordability Counts initiative was adopted statewide and is available for use by any state university in Florida for all courses at public higher education institutions.
FIU Online partners with Quality Matters to help ensure online and blended courses provide nationally recognized standards in quality assurance and student learning. Quality Matters’ comprehensive faculty-centered, peer-review system helps improve and certify online courses through an exhaustive process of examination that analyzes best-practices, considers benchmarking rubrics based on a review of current literature, and performs broad research to gauge each course’s features. FIU Online has more QM-certified courses than any other university in the nation.
FIU has been recognized as an institution with “highest research activity,” or R1 category, since 2015. This classification represents the highest level of research activity for doctorate-granting universities in the U.S. Less than 3 percent of universities, from a list of more than 4,500 universities, are classified as R1. FIU has continued to expand in all key indicator areas including its focus on research development expenditures, science and engineering research, as well as research doctoral conferrals in humanities, social science, STEM, and other fields.
