Programs In Action

When your community is anchored by three institutes of higher education, the list of programs and partnerships is endless. The breadth and depth of expertise is almost too much to take in and there is no limit to what can be achieved. Universities like Florida State University and Florida A&M University are eager partners when it comes to cultivating talent – especially when they know their students are headed toward an opportunity in their own backyard.

One notable partnership is one FSU enjoys with the Jim Moran family of businesses. In 2015, they gifted $100 million to FSU to support their on-campus Jim Moran Institute for Global Engagement and launch the Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship.

Danfoss is another great example. Their partnership began with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, which helped them design and build a commercial HVAC compressor that is 40% more efficient than any other similar product on the market due to the magnetic bearings technology they developed. The partnership has expanded to include the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and its affiliate, the Florida Center for Advanced Aeropropulsion, which is helping this global company seek innovative solutions to increase their products’ aerodynamics.
