The University of Florida
Located in Gainesville since 1906, The University of Florida (UF)
has 16 colleges, a major academic health center, a championship
winning athletic program, a top-ranked undergraduate online program
and, in keeping with its land-grant mission, one of the nation’s
most comprehensive agriculture and natural resources programs. All
are based at the University’s 2,000-acre campus, joining its
historic red-brick core with advanced facilities and preserved
natural areas and connecting to adjacent innovation, commercial and
UF has 55,000 students, 30,000 employees, 5,500 faculty members, a
$5 billion annual budget and more than 140 mission-focused units
across the state of Florida. It is the Sunshine State’s only member
of the Association of American Universities comprising the nation’s
60 leading public and private research universities. More than
51,000 students have applied as freshmen for the 2021-22 academic
year — a new record.
Several qualities distinguish UF among today’s leading public
research universities. The first is its highly comprehensive
breadth on a single campus, facilitating interdisciplinary
collaboration among, for example, faculty within the adjacent
colleges of journalism, engineering, and medicine. The second is
its unwavering support from the state of Florida, which has
endorsed UF’s drive to become one of the nation’s very best public
research universities — supporting those efforts since 2013 with
hundreds of millions of dollars in additional funding to grow its
faculty ranks by 500 members. UF’s third exceptional quality is its
dynamism. Like Florida, the nation’s third-largest state and among
the fastest-growing, UF is undergoing rapid transformation as it
pursues the overarching aspiration to be "a premier university that
the state, nation and world look to for leadership.”
