As Florida’s public research university in the Greater Miami area, Florida International University (FIU) is committed to high-quality teaching, state-of-the-art research and creative activity, and collaborative engagement with its local and global communities.
Many years ago, FIU’s Glenn Hubert Library housed an analog tv and radio production studio and station, and the space eventually became a virtual meeting facility. In 2019, the University set out to revamp this space with the latest storytelling technology for use by artists, journalists, and communication students. From the beginning, FIU knew it wanted a shared immersive space to accommodate 360° content - the question was, who to go to?
