At the University of Florida, we are a people of purpose. We're committed to challenging convention and ourselves. We see things not as they are, but as they could be. And we strive for a greater impact: one measured in people helped and lives improved.
With an average 4.3 G.P.A. and an average S.A.T. score of 1918, our fall 2015 freshman class is anything but average. And while those numbers are impressive, for us, they’re just the beginning. It’s not about the accomplishments of an individual; it’s what we can accomplish together.Academics

Together, we're able to contribute over $8 billion to help stimulate one of the strongest state economies in the nation. And through our combined efforts as Gators, we’re able to take every dollar invested in UF by the state of Florida and turn it into $15.Impact
With our land, sea and space grants, we have been entrusted with a responsibility to educate, research and serve. These grants fuel our commitment to making a greater difference. One felt not only by the citizens of Florida, but around the world. Below, you'll find just a few of the ways we're working for a greater impact through research.
Together, we're tackling some of the toughest problems in search of even tougher ones. We have facilities in all 67 counties in Florida, working together to help local farmers and economies grow and thrive. Our Emerging Pathogens Institute is a national model, charged with protecting the nation from a whole host of diseases and pathogens. Our ocean research helps protect the coasts responsible for 75 percent of Florida's G.D.P. at home and the homes of 3.5 billion people worldwide.Gator Good
UF has a 2,000-acre campus and more than 900 buildings, including the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-certified building in the state of Florida. That was just the beginning; now UF has more LEED-certified buildings than any other American university and with your help, we can continue to lead Florida and the world to a greener future.
At UF we have some of the top faculty in the country. In addition to attracting over $700 million in research each year, they foster the uniquely collaborative environment that transforms potential into actual results.
Our innovation doesn't end with our facilities - it's just the beginning. In fact, inside our classrooms, residence halls and labs, you can help us keep even more incredible things growing - like the U.S. economy, where research dollars are invested into startup companies at five times the national average.
The challenges facing our world are bigger than one person. One
organization. One university. The Gator Good is our
campaign to combine those efforts and solve those global problems.
Because together, our impact is greater.
