Ambassador Steven J. Green receives FIU Pillar Award

Ambassador Green AwardIn recognition of his longstanding support and commitment to FIU, Ambassador Steven J. Green was presented with the FIU Pillar Award during Spring 2017 Commencement. He is only the seventh individual to receive the prestigious award since the university's founding – and the first to receive the award from President Mark B. Rosenberg.

While the honorary doctorate is the highest academic recognition the university can confer, the Pillar Award is reserved for extraordinary individuals who have had a longstanding and transformative impact on the institution.

Ambassador Green, who along with his wife Dorothea Green and daughter Kimberly Green donated $20 million to the Steven J. Green School for International and Public Affairs, is a longtime champion of the university.

His passion and life's work is reflected in the programs and buildings that bear his name, including the Steven and Dorothea Green Library, which serves as the literal and figurative heart of the Modesto A. Maidique Campus.
