Florida Memorial University

Florida Memorial’s history and traditions reach back to 1879. Our legacy of determination and accomplishment has made us the only historically black university in southern Florida. We are a culturally diverse institution, transforming lives and helping to create a future for people from many races, ethnicities, countries, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. Members of the board of trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students and alumni take every opportunity possible to express pride in the institution.
