Fostering Student Success
The Center for Academic Success (CfAS) and FIU faculty have enjoyed lasting and successful partnerships across various disciplines. CfAS provides a space for inquiry and refinement of students' understanding of their coursework. Faculty encourage students to take advantage of this space of academic support, which complements their instruction and reinforces their ability to succeed in the classroom.
This cross-campus collaboration is most evident in the varied number of initiatives, customized workshops and presentations frequently delivered across the campus; often at the request of faculty and their departments. CfAS is energized by and looks forward to these partnerships at work.
