Diversity Resources and Student Support

The University of Florida is committed to creating a community that reflects the rich racial, cultural and ethnic diversity of the state and nation. No challenge that exists in higher education has greater importance than the challenge of enrolling students and hiring faculty and staff who are members of diverse racial, cultural and ethnic groups.

This pluralism enriches the university community, offers opportunity for robust academic dialogue and contributes to better teaching and research. The university benefits from the richness of a multicultural student body, faculty and staff who can learn from one another. Such diversity will empower and inspire respect and understanding among us.

The university does not tolerate the actions of anyone who violates the rights of another person. Through policy and collective practice, the university strives to embody a diversity that is truly reflects the state and nation.
