FSU has the expertise and opportunity to grow industry-sponsored research by increasing matching grants but also by promoting and leveraging existing skills of its research faculty and through synergistic leveraging of new interdisciplinary collaborations.
The student success initiative at FSU is focused on increasing experiential and formative learning experiences, including Entrepreneurship-and-Innovation-themed internships and co-op opportunities for students. This effort is aided by incentivizing faculty to engage in more industry collaboration and increasing corporate partnerships. We are also focused on promoting our student, faculty, staff and physical resources as valuable commodities for industry, governmental and higher education research and innovation partnerships.
FSU incentivizes and supports curricular and pedagogical innovation to enhance students’ learning experience. We also focus on increasing faculty and staff commercialization of their inventions and innovations. FSU encourages faculty and staff participation in E&I incubators and maker spaces like the FSU Innovation Hub and the DOMI Station while looking to expand the number of venues and mentoring, funding and collaboration opportunities with colleagues and students.
