Happy #ThankfulThursday …
We hope our newest reflection finds you well.
Today we reflect and celebrate on the outstanding work and success of our beloved Florida International University — Marile’s and our eldest son AR’s alma mater — and that of it’s Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs (SIPA).
“I’d like to see the Green School become a globally recognized school and I’d like to see the students from the Green School around the world in positions of leadership’’.
As proud Panther parents, volunteers and supporters — Marile & I have been involved in the Green School for many years.
Nearly 10 years ago, I had honor of joining President Rosenberg and Dean Stack for the inaugural Green School building ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Later, AR graduated from SIPA with degrees in Political Science and International Relations.
Today, Marile donates her time and talents as Chair of the Dean’s Advisory Council for the Green School. The entire Council is hard at work with the Dean, faculty and development team securing the funds that will make the new SIPA building a reality.
The construction of the new Green School building is part of FIU’s on-going capital campaign — Next Horizon: The Campaign for FIU, which is on pace to raise $750 million for FIU to — increase scholarships and student support; optimize 21st-century teaching; advance a vibrant, healthy Miami; accelerate research and discoveries; and escalate discovery to enterprise.
Please consider helping the Green School achieve its goal of fostering greater collaboration and inspiring its students to be the global leaders and change-makers of tomorrow by donating to the construction of SIPA’s building — that will unify their departments, centers and programs in one physical space.
For more information on how you too can be part of FIU’s vision for the future — please feel free to contact us or our dear friend JC del Valle, Executive Director of Development at (305) 338-8589.
Know we cherish your friendship and continued support.
Warmest personal regards,
