The current health crisis has disrupted much of what we knew as normal in higher education. In the wake of this pandemic, new norms have developed; many more will emerge over the course of the upcoming semesters. Despite the challenges and uncertainty COVID-19 has thrown at us, the Gator Nation has responded. Led by UF Health’s scientific and medical researchers, UF is implementing a plan to advance the success of our students, faculty and staff while prioritizing health and safety. You can learn more at our coronavirus resource website. Below you’ll find some of the programs and services that comprise our commitment to you on campus and beyond.
