Institutes and Centers

Institutes and centers are established to carry out research, service and instructional activities which supplement and extend programs of instruction and research offered by Florida Atlantic University. FAU’s state centers and institutes typically have a state-wide mission, include two or more state universities, have been approved by the Florida Board of Governors and have an advisory board with membership. FAU’s University centers and institutes follow the same protocols as state centers but do not necessarily carry out a state-wide mission and are self-supporting.
