The Chairs Advisory Council (CAC) is composed of all department chairs at FIU. Acting together, the CAC aims to define the role of the chair at FIU, and ensure that chairs are able to perform effectively as leaders of their units. To that end, the CAC seeks out professional development opportunities, promotes institutional awareness, and builds respect for all its members. The CAC also advises the leadership of Academic Affairs on issues related to departmental governance and management. Finally, the CAC inculcates a sense of shared mission and purpose for all chairs, irrespective of department and college. The CAC elects its own officers, and meets as a whole at least once every fall and spring semester.

CAC Officers (2020-2021):

Victor Uribe, Chair of CAC, Department of History
Maria Olenick, Vice Chair of CAC, Department of Undergraduate Nursing
