NOUN: A designation of excellence for top-tier universities in Florida based on nationally recognized performance measures.
Not only is FSU a preeminent university in Florida, but we also jumped in rankings more than any other public university in the U.S. Here’s how we’ll use preeminence to continue our rise:
HIRE EXCEPTIONAL FACULTY
FSU hires exceptional faculty who help solve real problems that affect our nation. They are also great mentors, inspiring students through hands-on research. Growing our faculty, particularly in STEM, will improve our national competitiveness.
SUPPORT STUDENT SUCCESS
FSU invests in students; we are ranked in the top 15 of all public universities for 4-year graduation rates. We attract a diverse student population, provide comprehensive academic support, and prepare them for successful careers.
ENGAGE STUDENT SCHOLARS
FSU seeds the leadership pipeline of Florida. Preeminence funding helps increase the number of top students at FSU and provides them with a rigorous, engaged learning environment that can only be found at a premier student-centered research university.
