(FINAL APPROVED 2010-2020)
The two principal campuses of Florida International University (FIU) lie within Miami-Dade County.
The largest campus, Modesto A. Maidique, occupies approximately 342 acres at the southeast quadrant
of the intersection of the Homestead Extension of the Florida Turnpike (SR 821) and Tamiami Trail
(US 41) in west central Miami-Dade County. Biscayne Bay Campus occupies approximately 195 acres on
Biscayne Bay within the City of North Miami in northeast Miami-Dade County. A branch campus, Engineering
Center, is located north of Modesto A. Maidique at the northeast intersection of SW 107th Avenue and West Flagler Street.
The 2010-2020 Campus Master Plan Update for Florida International University is contained in two
documents: a Supporting Inventory and Analysis document and a Final Campus Master Plan Goals,
Objectives and Policies document. The Inventory and Analysis document contains background information
including data and analysis establishing the basis for the goals, objectives and policies contained in
the Final Campus Master Plan document. Provisions for the Modesto A. Maidique, Engineering Center and
Biscayne Bay Campus are integrated within the applicable elements in both documents. All other properties
owned or maintained by the University are excluded from this master plan. The Supporting Inventory and
Analysis document contains an analysis of existing conditions, while the Final Campus Master Plan document
contains maps required to depict planned future conditions.
The Goals, Objectives and Policies which follow are the primary mechanism for the implementation of the Campus Master
Plan through the 2020 planning horizon. Requirements for Capital Improvements Implementation are contained in the Capital
Improvements Element. Procedures for monitoring, evaluation and amendment of the campus master plan are contained in the various plan elements.
The process of preparing the campus master plan reflected and responded to input and interaction from various segments of
the University Community. Multiple meetings and workshops were held at each stage of the planning process, culminating
in the plans presentation to, and approval for adoption by the FIU Board of Trustees.
The draft final master plan began a lengthy process of external review. The draft plan was reviewed by Miami-Dade County,
the City of North Miami, the Town of Sweetwater, the regional planning council and water management district, the State
Land Management Advisory Council and a number of state agencies prior to adoption. The plan was subjected to review by
the general public and two duly noticed public hearings were conducted to solicit public input on the draft plan. This
plan reflects those comments and is the result of this internal and external review process.
