We salute you FIU parents and families!

As parents of FIU students and alumni, your FIU Parent & Family Council knows the dedication, long hours, and perseverance it takes for our Panthers to walk across that stage. We congratulate you because you too have worked hard, worried, and supported your Panthers and now it’s all paying off – your graduate will soon be out in the real world. We are thrilled to help you celebrate their accomplishment and we’ll be cheering them on too!

We invite you to celebrate your graduate's achievement by participating in the university's Commencement activities; for all the details on commencement ceremonies and other events, please visit the commencement website. For grad gear, diploma frames, and other FIU merch, please visit the Barnes & Nobles at FIU.

Congratulations and Go Panthers,

Show Your Grad Pride

Show your Panther pride and tell the world that an “FIU Proud Panther Grad” lives at your home! 

The FIU Parent & Family Council is raising funds to support student scholarships. Consider honoring your graduate by making a donation of $20.21 (or more) in their honor to support the FIU Student Success Fund and help students who are in financial need. In appreciation for your gift, the FIU Foundation will gift you the official Class of 2021 yard sign high resolution image for download. For more info, click here.

Thank you in advance for your generous support of our FIU students!
Consider leaving a legacy at FIU with a scholarship named after your graduate. At FIU, our alumni are known for making an incredible difference in the lives of those who are coming after them. Creating and funding a named scholarship will support students while leaving a legacy at the university. You may want to speak to your graduate to find the fund or project they are most passionate about at the university – perhaps its their college, a club/organization they have been a part of or perhaps a brand new fund to help raise funds and awareness for a brand new cause.

Please contact Beatriz "Betty" Newborn to honor your graduate in this special way. We are so grateful for your engagement and your desire to make an impact for our students and our institution.
