A Note From the Dean

A Note From the Dean

The University of Florida is on the rise, now a top five public university, and our college continues to lead in this effort. This reflects the commitment of our faculty and staff to educational excellence, research innovation and student success.

Together we are focused on winning the battle against addiction, improving the quality of life for those suffering from debilitating neurological, cardiovascular and muscular disease, and helping span cultural divides through tourism and sport.

The future looks bright – I'm confident that our college and The Gator Nation will continue to rise above and move the world forward.

I wish you all the best this holiday season.

Go Gators!
