Family Friendly Workplace
FIU has created innovative policies and programs that give our faculty members the freedom to focus on their families while advancing their careers. Our policies also recognize the changing definitions of family — from blended families, adopted families, and same-sex domestic partnerships, to the demands of caring for aging parents.

All Employee Benefits
FIU strives to remain at the forefront of higher education in the types of benefits provided to faculty. The value of benefits should be considered as part of a total compensation package earned by an employee.
Retirement is just the beginning of a new phase of your career and your life. Retired and Emeritus faculty at FIU continue to enjoy a relationship with their department and University, participate in research and campus life, and give back in many different ways.
Faculty Mentoring Program
FIU has made a key commitment to creating a strong framework of mentoring for new and junior faculty members. Upon hire, you will be provided an opportunity to be assigned to a faculty mentor. The value of this relationship will be part of the annual review process to ensure success. Faculty may be provided a mentor within their own department or discipline, with an external partner or with a faculty member across departmental lines and workshops with leading experts in academic mentoring.
