WHAT: Broward College
and Florida International University will host a special event to commemorate the
construction of the Broward College-FIU
Broward Center in Miramar, an 89,000-square-foot joint-use facility. The presidents
of both institutions will discuss their plans for this new facility. The four-story,
state-of-the-art building was designed by Perkins + Will and is being built by
Kaufman Lynn Construction. Slated to open this fall, the building will be LEED-certified
and will feature classrooms,
science labs, meeting spaces and student commons. The student common
area and dining facilities on the first floor will be shared by both institutions.
College’s offerings will focus on business, supply chain management, and global
trade and logistics. A number of credit-for-prior learning options will also be
available, as well as credit by examination.
offerings are similar to the current offering at the Pines Center, which will move
to Miramar at the end of the summer: undergraduate programs in liberal arts,
business and construction management and graduate programs in business,
engineering, education and public administration. Certification/non-degree programs,
test preparation and languages also will be available.
