Education in Focus

The University of Florida had the honor of hosting the State University System’s Trustee Retreat and Board of Governor’s meeting on campus this week. The Trustee Retreat included a visit from Governor Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis. Governor DeSantis addressed the group and emphasized his pride for the state’s higher education systems. In case you missed it, Florida was recently ranked #1 for higher education, for the third year in a row, by U.S. News and World Report.

With the support of Governor DeSantis, we are confident that the University of Florida and our State University System will continue to be leaders among the nation in higher education.

Listen to the Governor’s remarks here.

During the first week of November, the Florida Legislature will return to Tallahassee to continue developing policies for the 2020 Legislative Session. To learn more about the policies related to higher education please tune into the House Higher Education Appropriation Subcommittee on Wednesday and the House Higher Education & Career Readiness Subcommittee on Thursday.
