Panthers Care

Panthers Care, a Dean of Students Office initiative, seeks to promote a culture of care in the FIU community by fostering a campus culture grounded in the values of caring and support. At FIU, we envision an affirming university community where students support one another and speak up on behalf of those who may need assistance. 


The Panthers Care Program includes:
  • Outreach and education for the FIU community about how to identify a student in need of support
  • Workshops for student and staff to encourage bystander intervention and speaking up for others
  • An online referral system for faculty, staff, and students to help identify students in distress
  • Outreach to students who self-identify or are identified by others, by providing appropriate referrals and resources to address their concerns
  • A network of campus resources that are available to assist and support students
