Centers & Institutes

Florida International University's centers and institutes are required to submit an annual report and budget. The report will describe how success has been measured, how the center's or institute's function could not be performed by an academic department or by another center/institute, and how the center/institute has made an impact.

The Office of Academic Planning and Accountability is available to provide support in completing the annual report. Please contact Dr. Susan Himburg.
