More Ways to Give Back

Donating money isn’t the only way to enrich our FIU. Through programs like Dining with 12 Panthers, the Panther Alumni Recruitment Team, Advocate FIU and Mentor programs, you have ways to volunteer and give back to FIU wherever you are.

Ambassador Program

FIU Alumni Association Ambassadors are hand-selected individuals that have been recommended by their peers, FIU faculty or FIU staff and have demonstrated strong enthusiasm and support for FIU. An Alumni Ambassador is a proud alumnus living outside of South Florida that represents FIU in their personal and professional network and serves as a Panther point of contact for the FIU community. Alumni Ambassadors can represent a city, state or country.
