History

Founding: 1943-1969

The founding of Florida International University began in 1943, when state Senator Ernest 'Cap' Graham (father of future Florida governor and U.S. senator Bob Graham) presented the state legislature with the initial proposal for the establishment of a public university in South Florida. While his bill did not pass, Graham persisted in presenting his proposal to colleagues, advising them of Miami's need for a state university. He is recognized for his early awareness of the necessity of a public university to serve the city's growing population. Ernest R. Cap Graham (born in South Dakota, 1886, died in Florida, 1957) was a political figure in Florida, having served as a member of the Florida Senate from 1937 to 1944, when he unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Florida. ... Daniel Robert Graham (born November 9, 1936) is an American politician. ... This article is about the city in Florida. ...


In 1964, Senate Bill 711 was introduced by Florida Senator Robert M. Haverfield; it instructed the state Board of Education and the Board of Regents (BOR), to begin planning for the development of a state university in Miami. The bill was signed into law by then-governor W. Haydon Burns in June 1965 and FIU was officially founded. A Board of governors is usually the governing board of a public entity. ... William Haydon Burns (March 17, 1912 - November 22, 1987) was the thirty-fifth governor of Florida. ...


FIU's founding president Charles "Chuck" Perry was appointed by the Board of Regents in July 1969 after a nationwide search. Just 31 years old, the new president was the youngest in the history of the State University System and, at the time, the youngest university president in the country. Perry recruited the three co-founders - Butler Waugh, Donald McDowell and Nick Sileo - who came to abandoned Tamiami Airport in the summer of 1969 and launched the monumental task of creating a new university. Alvah Chapman, former Miami Herald publisher and Knight Ridder chairman, used his civic standing and media power to assist the effort. In the 1980s, Chapman would become chair of the FIU Foundation Board of Trustees. Chuck Perry was the founding president of Florida International University in Miami, FL in 1965. ...

In September 1972, 5,667 students finally entered the new state university. Miami had been the largest city in the country lacking a public baccalaureate-granting institution, and now it finally had a university that offered both accessibility and affordability. Eighty percent of the student body had just graduated from Dade County Junior College (now Miami-Dade College). A typical student entering FIU was 25 years old and attending school full-time while holding down a full-time job. Forty-three percent were married. FIU was far from a typical university. Negotiations with the University of Miami and Dade County Junior College led FIU to open as an upper-division only school. It would be 9 years before lower-division classes were added.

By late 1975, after seven years at the helm, Charles Perry felt he had accomplished his goal and left the University to become president and publisher of the Sunday newspaper magazine Family Weekly (now USA Weekend), one of the country's largest magazines. When he left, there were over 10,000 students attending classes and a campus with five major buildings and a sixth being planned Charles Perry was an Afro-American author whose only published novel was Portrait of a Young Man Drowning. ...

Crosby and Wolfe: 1976-1986

Harold Crosby, the University's second president and the founding president of the University of West Florida in Pensacola, agreed in 1976 to serve a three-year "interim" term. Under his leadership, the North Campus (which would be officially renamed the Biscayne Bay Campus in February of 1977) - located on the former Interama site on Biscayne Bay - was opened in 1977. State Senator Jack Gordon was instrumental in securing funding for the development of the campus. President Crosby was also insistent that the "I" in FIU be highlighted, which prompted the launching of new programs with an international focus and the recruitment of faculty from the Caribbean and Latin America. President Crosby's resignation in January 1979, triggered the search for a "permanent" president.

Florida International University - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2508 words)
The founding of FIU began in 1943, when state Sen. Ernest 'Cap' Graham (father of future Florida governor and U.S. senator Bob Graham) presented the state legislature with the initial proposal for the establishment of a public university in South Florida.
FIU was named one of the top 10 public commuter colleges in the U.S. in the 1995 edition of Money Guide, an annual report published by Money magazine, and has been cited in several other of the country's leading college guides.
FIU is a member of the NCAA, participating in Division I and the Sun Belt Conference in all sports except for men's soccer (which competes in Conference USA as an affiliate member).
UFF-FIU Website (1746 words)
Florida cannot continue to send faculty the message that their work is not valued and still expect to recruit and retain faculty.
Recently, each university has made an effort to identify counterparts in other states (universities of the same type that educators most often admire) and ask what these institutions are doing that makes a difference in quality.
FIU is the first university in the state to agree to such a policy.
