Office of the President

Message from the President

Florida Polytechnic University was founded in 2012 on the visionary idea that a technology-rich, industry-inspired education will prepare students to be lifetime employable. At Florida Poly, students learn to push the boundaries of traditional learning and receive the hands-on education needed to become high-tech leaders, doers, engineers and entrepreneurs. Florida Poly immerses students in core STEM subjects and an entrepreneurial environment that mirrors the dynamic high-tech marketplace.

Key to Florida Poly’s development are the many contributors whose generosity supports the University’s scholarships and innovative mission. On behalf of the entire University community, I want to express my appreciation to the Foundation Board and the many business and individual donors who know that Florida Polytechnic University is a great investment for our community, our state and our students.

As an institution of higher learning focused on advancing technology and our state’s economy, it is critical that Florida Poly meets the issues of today while anticipating the challenges of tomorrow. Working together, faculty, staff, students, industry partners and our community are building a culture of collaboration, problem-solving and innovation. This is the foundation on which our future will be based.
