High-Impact Practices

Building on the work of the Association of American Colleges & Universities, this project aims to expand and improve student learning and success. At FIU, we offer opportunities for students to invest in their success beyond graduation through participation in our Live Learn Grow Personal & Professional Development Series as well as our university-wide mentoring initiative.

According to a recent Gallup study, there are certain attributes that employers seek when considering hiring recent graduates. Critical thinking, oral and written communication, and team-building skills are a few key attributes that attract employers. Students who engage and are active participants in their academic journey can ensure success beyond graduation. Below are 11 high-impact practices as mentioned in the AAC&U:

  1. Capstone Courses and Projects
