A Message from FIU Foundation CEO Howard Lipman

The Next Horizon campaign is an ambitious undertaking for our FIU. Through this $750 million campaign, we will see our university transformed by strengthening the pillars of student success and research excellence.

We know that we can achieve this bold goal. How will we accomplish this?


During this phase, it is vital that all of our stakeholders – alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations – learn about how we can participate in the Next Horizon campaign. This act of giving can be in many areas, such as increasing scholarships and student support; optimizing 21st-century teaching; advancing a vibrant, healthy Miami; accelerating research and discovery; and escalating discovery to enterprise.

However you choose to do so, know that you will be helping our FIU achieve its goal.

As you think of how to begin participating in the Next Horizon campaign, I encourage you to explore this website. Learn about the people who are already doing so and the lives they are changing. Schedule a visit to campus, and see this change in action. 

I thank you for your support in helping us reach the Next Horizon.


Howard Lipman
CEO, FIU Foundation, Inc.
