The platform provides easy discovery of compatible colleagues, courses, advisors and research; grant related collaborations and potential partnerships; sources for possible internships and jobs; and other interconnected resources driving student, faculty and institutional success. Equally, SCHOLARS@FIU showcases productivity and expertise to the larger community and world; helps integrate student internships and faculty expertise with local businesses and non-profit organizations; and supports the discovery of likely faculty-faculty and faculty-student mentoring relationships.
