The Heart of the Gator Nation
Nearly every UF undergraduate takes at least one class in our college during their time at the university. We also have more than 14,000 undergraduate and graduate students pursuing their degrees from among 42 diverse disciplines. From astronomy to women’s studies, we offer the largest selection of majors on campus.
But educating tomorrow’s leaders is not the only task keeping our faculty of more than 800 scholars busy. Whether discovering new planets, serving on presidential taskforces or writing bestselling novels, they have achieved international acclaim for their contributions to society.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is, in short, the heart of the University of Florida and the Gator Nation. As UF continues its rise to become one of the top public institutions in the nation, it is more important than ever to invest in its core.
The University of Florida has launched Florida Tomorrow, a $1.5 billion capital campaign aimed at not only shaping the future of our university, but meeting the challenges of the 21st century by enriching our outstanding teaching, research and outreach initiatives that are making a difference in the world.
Alumni and friends of CLAS gave more than $57 million during the university’s “It’s Performance that Counts!” capital campaign of the 1990s. Thanks to our donors, we were able to renovate historic buildings, fund student scholarships and fellowships, provide faculty support, establish the Dial Center for Written and Oral Communication, and much more.
Through the new Florida Tomorrow campaign, our goal is to enrich our college’s classrooms and research labs by raising $65 million.
With Friends Like You...
Anyone can make a difference! The following gifts to our campaign demonstrate the generosity and vision of our alumni and friends.
