Although Florida Atlantic provides for the educational needs of commuter students, in recent years it has undertaken an effort to increase its academic and research standings while evolving into a more traditional university. Under the direction of current President Frank T. Brogan, the university has raised admissions standards, increased research funding, built new facilities and established notable partnerships with major research institutions.[7][2][8] These efforts have resulted in not only an increase in the university's academic profile, but also the elevation of the football team to Division I competition status, plans for an on-campus football stadium and more on-campus student housing, and a partnership with Boca Raton Community Hospital and the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine to build a teaching hospital on the main campus in Boca Raton.[9] University President is the title of the highest ranking officer within a university, within university systems that prefer that appellation over other variations such as Chancellor or rector. ...

Beginnings

On July 15, 1961, in order to meet the burgeoning educational demands of south Florida, the state legislature passed an act authorizing the establishment of a new university in the city of Boca Raton. A 1940s-era Army airbase was selected as the site of the new university. FAU opened on September 14, 1964 with an initial student body of 867 students situated within five colleges. The first degree awarded was an honorary doctorate given to U.S. President Lyndon Johnson on October 25, 1964.[10] At the time of its opening Florida Atlantic's faculty numbered 120 out of a total of 350 employees.

Expansion and growth

FAU's history is one of continuing expansion as the university population has grown. The university originally served only upper-division students. "The idea was to complement the state's community college (then called junior college) system, accepting students who had earned their associate degrees from those institutions."[11] Florida Atlantic began its growth from a one campus university in 1971 when Florida Atlantic opened its Commercial Boulevard campus in Fort Lauderdale. Due to a rapidly expanding population in South Florida, in 1984 FAU took another major step in its growth by opening its doors to undergraduate students. The following year, the university added its third campus in downtown Fort Lauderdale on Las Olas Boulevard.

Florida Atlantic's main campus in Boca Raton was established on the remnants of a World War II American Army airbase in 1964. Spanning 850 acres (3.5 km²) near the Atlantic Ocean, the site is located between the cities of Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. The campus was designated a burrowing owl sanctuary in 1971, by the Audubon Society.[32] The owl prefers the campus because there are few predators due to the university's proximity to the Boca Raton Airport, and the fact that the campus was originally cleared of vegetation when operating during World War II.

Florida Atlantic's 18 varsity sports teams, known as the Owls, compete in the NCAA's Division I Sun Belt Conference. The university's athletics program began in 1979, when FAU first started sponsoring intercollegiate teams.[51] Since then the university has worked to expand the quality of its intercollegiate program by attracting renowned coaches such as Howard Schnellenberger, Matt Doherty, and Rex Walters. Due to this effort, in 2006 the athletic department was ranked 79th in the nation by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). "In conjunction with USA Today and the United States Sports Academy, NACDA recognized FAU for its Division I athletic programs and accomplishments."[52] This ranking placed Florida Atlantic in the top 24% of 326 NCAA Division I universities.[53] The FAU Owl athletic teams have also garnered a number of accolades for their accomplishments. During the 2007 season the men's basketball team was noted as "one of the Sun Belt Conference's top offensive teams", with a "scary offense" that earned it the reputation of the "best shooting team in the conference." [54] The baseball team was also recognized by the NCAA as ranking in the Top-10 in five team categories.

Traditions

Since the inception of the athletics program, a number of sports-related traditions and school spirit organizations have been started at the university. One new tradition is "Bury the Burrow in Red," which calls for Florida Atlantic students to wear as much red as possible and fill the Burrow, the university's multi-purpose arena, during the annual basketball face-off between FAU and nearby neighbor Florida International University (FIU).[55] The official spirit group supporting Florida Atlantic athletics are the "prOWLers". The group began in February 2002 when Pablo Paez, Will Pearson, and Michael W. Moore gathered a group of students to rally around the men's basketball program during the team’s run for the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. Since that time the group has grown and been reorganized and reinvigorated by Rick Smith in order to ensure that it remains as one of the lead spirit organizations at FAU. The group is funded by the Student Alumni Association, and today "...can be found at most sporting events for FAU, teaching students and fans the university’s fight songs and cheers, while carrying on tradition from year’s past."[56] In addition, the university has two other spirit organizations which support specific university sports; the "Rowdy Rexes" support the basketball programs and the "Crazy Coonies" support the baseball program.[32] Image File history File linksMetadata No higher resolution available. ...

This game provides bragging rights to one of the South Florida teams until the next game is played the following season. As a home game the competition takes place at Dolphins Stadium, as an away game, the bowl is played at FIU Stadium in Miami.[32] The Shula Bowl is a yearly college football game between FAU and FIU.

Campus organizations and activities

For the 2006-2007 academic year, Florida Atlantic had approximately 150 registered student organizations. This includes 40 academic organizations, 19 honor societies, 18 spiritual/religious organizations, 16 diversity appreciation organizations, 5 service organizations, 25 personal interest organizations, 12 club-sports, and 7 student government agencies. These clubs and organizations run the gamut from sailing to Ultimate Frisbee, from varsity and club sports and a jazz group to a pottery guild, from political organizations to chess and video game clubs.[64] These organizations are funded by student tuition, from which $10.00 per credit hour goes toward an activities and service fee fund. This generates approximately $5.8 million which is then given to Student Government for allocation to student clubs and organizations.

Greek life

Florida Atlantic is home to 20 chapters of national fraternities and sororities. These organizations provide academic motivation, forums for education on various life issues, philanthropy and service to the community, contribute to the campuses through participation in campus life, and foster opportunities for people with similar values to engage in friendship.[70] There are 11 fraternities and 9 sororities active at FAU whose membership accounts for approximately 4% of the university's student body.[64][26][71] There are currently no on-campus Greek houses.[71] Although the 2006 Boca Raton Campus master plan includes a site-map and a goal for 8 Greek houses to be built within 3 years, to date there are no plans for the construction of housing in the immediate future.[72][73] The terms fraternity and sorority (from the Latin words and , meaning brother and sister respectively) may be used to describe many social and charitable organizations, for example the Lions Club, Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Rotary International, Optimist International, or the Shriners. ... Philanthropy is the act of donating money, goods, time, or effort to support a charitable cause, usually over an extended period of time and in regard to a defined objective. ...
