Brandt Absolu is a junior at FIU majoring in Electrical Engineering. He is currently the President of the FIU chapter of IDEAS Miami (Intellectual Decisions on Environmental Awareness Solutions, a national organization). One of Brandt’s main passions is biking. He started FIU Bikes which strives to make FIU more “bike friendly” and provide services such as the free bike repair shop to the FIU biking community.  Before Brandt graduates he hopes to secure FIU the designation as a Bike Friendly University from the League of American Bicyclists. The FIU Office of Univeristy Sustainability has a close working relationship with Brandt and was honored to have him as a staff member during Summer 2011.

Congrats to Brandt for your efforts as a leader in
the Sustainability movement at FIU!  A recognition well deserved!
