The FIU Honors college would like to congratulate the following Honors students for being members of the class of 2020 Millennium Fellows. These 13 students were selected from an applicant pool of 15,159 from 1,438 campuses across 135 countries.
United Nations Academic Impact and the Millennium Campus Network have joined forces to help these students bring their initiatives to fruition. They will participate in a semester-long on-campus leadership development program. The program consists of Fellowship sessions where Millennium Fellows will reflect on their core values, hone their skills, and take informed action for United Nation goals. Using the tools acquired in these sessions, Fellows will take on projects, either independently or as a collective, to advance a Sustainable Development Goal. Our Honors Fellows will join the Millennium Fellows alumni network, which will enable them to continue to work with other Fellows to develop the goals and principles of United Nations Academic Impact.
Congratulations to the class of 2020 Millennium Fellows!
