The University of Florida

The University of Florida (UF) is a major, public, comprehensive, land-grant, research university. The state’s oldest and most comprehensive university, UF is among the nation’s most academically diverse public universities. UF has a long history of established programs in international education, research and service. It is one of only 17 public, land-grant universities that belongs to the Association of American Universities.

One of America’s all-around best universities, the University of Florida drives future-making education, eye-opening discoveries, life-saving health care, and community-building collaboration.

In 2020, the university augmented the plan with the “UF Core Values” underpinning its goals and overarching aspiration with six central values: Excellence, Discovery & Innovation, Inclusion, Freedom & Civility, Community and Stewardship. The values were shaped by input from all of UF’s key stakeholders to ensure they reflect the diverse UF community.
