The "Little Haiti Confronts Gentrification" photography project has been a collaborative initiative involving faculty and students from the Department of Global & Sociocultural Studies, FIU Photography/Department of Art & Art History, and Miami-Dade College (Wolfson Campus) Photography/Department of Arts & Philosophy. The project has been funded by the FIU/MDC Humanities Edge grant program.
The Department of Global & Sociocultural Studies and Department of Public Policy & Administration are offering a variety of interdisciplinary courses in a block-style schedule on Tuesdays at FIU's location at I-75. From courses that fulfill Global Learning requirements to a sampling of public policy, sociology and anthropology courses, this block-style schedule offers a convenient, flexible option for students.
