FAU Tech Runway is Open!
We hope that you and your loved ones made it safely through hurricane Irma. FAU Tech Runway is up and running with power and wifi.

Unfortunately, this is not the case for many of our neighbors. Those within the path of hurricane Irma and Maria are in desperate need of food and supplies as recovery begins. The Division of Research is collaborating with the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County to collect donations on Sun. Sept. 24 and Sun. Oct 1 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Lynn Financial Center. Donations can also be made through the non-profit's Amazon wishlist .
