Congratulations to Dr. Darici! She has made a contribution in the academic sciences for women and underrepresented minorities, not only to FIU, but nationally as well. Here at FIU, Dr. Darici galvanized a group of women faculty to propose a plan designed to improve institutional planning for women and minority faculty. The effort has led to an unprecedented accomplishment with the establishment of the new Office to Advance Women, Equity and Diversity at FIU. She is an innovator and a strong influencer for instilling principles of diversity across the university.
