Office to Advance Women, Equity and Diversity

In compliance with Section 1004.06, Florida Statutes, and Florida Board of Governors Regulation 9.016 the Office to Advance Women, Equity and Diversity (AWED) has been closed. FIU remains committed to supporting faculty success and, to this end, faculty training and support related to hiring, tenure and promotion, professional conduct and conflict resolution (including academic theater performances) and faculty mentoring have been transitioned to the Office of Faculty Leadership and Success.
