Student Leadership Summit

The Annual FIU Student Leadership Summit is held each February on the Biscayne Bay Campus. The Summit is a one-day conference for current students. The Summit offers our students the opportunity to learn from the vast expertise of our faculty and administrators, to share their leadership experiences with each other and to establish a network of support and cooperation within the university. The Student Leadership Summit is sponsored by the Center for Leadership and Service, Campus Life offices at MMC & BBC, Housing & Residential Life, Orientation & Parent Programs.

To enhance student learning at the Summit, we have identified learning outcomes around competencies that student leaders should develop for performance excellence. Faculty, staff, advisors and graduate students will be facilitating a series of workshops and presentations that directly tackle these leadership competencies. This year the event will take place on February 3rd, 2018 from 8am – 4pm at BBC. Registration for the event will open in December and is required. For more information about the event or to register visit leadserve.fiu.ed > Develop Leadership Skills > Student Leadership Summit tab.

Breakfast in the Park

Join us for Breakfast in the Park, an official Art Basel Miami Beach eventpresented in partnership with West Kendall Baptist Hospital. Each year since 2004, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed guests to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted sculptor, and guided tours of our Sculpture Park and exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public.

This year, Los Angeles-based Daniel Joseph Martinez will take the stage as our guest speaker. For more than two decades, Martinez has tackled questions of race, identity, and the body in his multidisciplinary work. His sculpture A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love; or, Where You Goin’ with That Gun in Your Hand: Bobby Seale and Huey Newton Discuss the Relationships between Expressionism and Social Reality Present in Hitler’s Paintings, from 2005, graces the entrance of the museum. Martinez has represented the U.S. in 11 biennials worldwide, including the Venice Biennial, Mexico City Biennial, and two Whitney Biennials.bitp-2017_500x400
