Your Voice. Your UF. Your Ideas.

Your voice and your ideas can help encourage an inclusive climate that allows all of us to do our best work and together shape a better UF. During the month of August and into the fall semester, faculty and staff are invited to join the conversation about how the university can better foster an overall sense of belonging while leveraging the uniqueness of the people who work here.

Moderated by members of UF’s Climate Study Work Group and the President’s Council on Diversity, the forums provide the campus community with opportunities to review and discuss the results of last fall’s Faculty & Staff Climate Survey, to share their thoughts on the results most salient to them, and to begin to brainstorm action items and next steps.

Faculty and staff may save a spot to attend one of these sessions by clicking on the registration link in the table below, or they are welcome to stop by to participate:
