Founded in 1961, Florida Atlantic University is a comprehensive public university that is currently serving more than 28,000 degree-seeking students at seven locations strategically arrayed along the state’s southeastern coastline. Long known as an outstanding teaching institution and included in the Princeton Review’s 2007 listing of the best universities in America, FAU is undergoing rapid development as a center of cutting-edge research, particularly in the biomedical arena. This process has been accelerated by the University’s recently formed partnerships with three internationally known biomedical research organizations: the Scripps Research Institute, the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies and the Max Planck Society. Additionally, FAU has one of the most innovative medical education programs in the United States, a cost-effective, public-private initiative that has received full funding by the Florida legislature and is on-track to be self-sustaining.

Through its well-developed network of partner campuses, FAU serves students at locations in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Davie, Dania Beach, Jupiter, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce as well as through distance learning. FAU’s student body, which ranks as the most ethnically and culturally diverse in Florida's State University System, includes men and women of both traditional and non-traditional age. Modern student housing is available on the Boca Raton and Jupiter campuses, and all campuses offer attractive and varied dining facilities. The University community is served by an excellent library system that has more than one million hard copy holdings, 500,000 e-books and 5,000 e-journal subscriptions.

A member of the Sun Belt Conference, FAU has 18 men’s and women’s intercollegiate teams, including an NCAA Division I football team that has won two bowl games in just eight years of play. Plans are in motion to build a 30,000-seat football stadium on the Boca Raton campus.

FAU’s 10 academically distinguished colleges are the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, the Charles E. Schmidt College of Biomedical Science, College of Business, the College for Design and Social Inquiry, the College of Education, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College, the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science and the Graduate College.

The University currently offers more than 170 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Additionally, the University holds membership in the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges and the Council of Graduate Schools.

FAU has fully funded Eminent Scholar Chairs in disciplines that include the arts and humanities, brain science, community education, engineering, growth management, Holocaust and Judaic studies, international business, marine biology, nursing, philosophy and social science.

FAU is committed to serving the educational needs of persons of retirement age through non-credit courses offered by the Lifelong Learning Society, which is believed to be the largest and most successful organization of its kind in the United States.

    FAU - 2011 PSA

    FAU - 2011 PSA

    Some universities measure greatness in decades and centuries. Florida Atlantic University measures it with every student who earns a degree, every researcher who makes a discovery and every community that is transformed.

    At FAU's dedication ceremony in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson challenged the University's pioneers: "It is time now...for a new, adventurous, imaginative, courageous breakthrough for a new revolution in education in America."

    With those words, FAU opened its doors as the first public university in southeast Florida and the first in America designed for upper division students only. Since day one, FAU has pushed the bounds of higher education. Less than 50 years later, the University serves 28,000 freshmen, transfers and graduate students on seven campuses and sites.

    People from every walk of life find a place at FAU. Students choose from more than 170 degree programs, faculty researchers utilize more than 40 research centers and the community engages hundreds of cultural and educational events every year.
