3 FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY HISTORY Florida International University is one of America's most dynamic and fastest growing universities. FIU has achieved, in just 35 years, many benchmarks of excellence that have taken other universities more than a century to reach. FIU was established by the State Legislature on June 22, 1965. Classes began at Modesto A. Maidique on September 14, 1972, with almost 6,000 students enrolled in upper division undergraduate and graduate programs, the largest entering class in United States collegiate history. In 1981, the University added lower division classes for freshmen and sophomores, expanding its enrollment capacity. Today, with an enrollment of more than 38,000 students, FIU is the largest University in the South Florida region and twentieth largest comprehensive university in the nation. FIU is fully accredited as a graduate and undergraduate institution with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and offers nearly 250 degree programs and courses at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels in eight colleges and schools. In 2000, the Carnegie Foundation designated FIU in the “Doctoral/Research University-Extensive” category, the broadest, most comprehensive Carnegie rating possible for any university in the United States. Only four other Florida Universities fall into this category and nationwide, only 151 out of more than 3,000 universities, fewer than four percent of all universities, have achieved this distinction. CAMPUSES The University has two campuses: Modesto A. Maidique Campus at Southwest Eighth Street and 107 th Avenue in Miami; the Biscayne Bay Campus at Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 151 st Street in North Miami (3000 Northeast 151 st Street North Miami, Florida 33181-3005).
