Tostada Tuesdays: 10 Days of Connection


Join us Tuesday May 8th, 2018 at 9 a.m. for a special edition of #TostadaTuesday, featuring Connect Miami’s 10 Days of Connection. 10 Days of Connection is a community-wide challenge for everyone to step out of their comfort zones and connect with people not like them, in whatever way they are ready! 

Tostada Tuesdays is meant to be a space where FIU students, faculty and staff can engage with external partners and our community. As our university pursues the renewal of our Carnegie Community Engagement classification in 2020, it is settings like Tostada Tuesdays that facilitate impactful touch points leading to the fulfillment of our BeyondPossible 2020 Plan.

Global Engagement Film Series – Tohoku Tomo



March 2016 is the five year anniversary of the great east Japan earthquake. On March 11, 2011, while the rest of the world watched, much of the northern coast was washed away by the massive tsunami, triggered by a 9.0 earthquake.The tragedy was devastating to Tohoku, Japan, and the entire world. People lost loved ones, their homes, and even their way of life. In the months after the disaster, countless volunteers rallied from around the world and came to Japan’s aid to help begin the long process of rebuilding. Whether by donating money, organizing events, or coming to volunteer, these individuals showed they truly care about Japan and about the people of Tohoku. Tohoku Tomo tells their story.
