2014 Constitutional Vote
We need your vote! In January 2014 - a joint committee consisting of BOTH faculty and administrators was established to work on revisions to the IFAS Constitution. The committee, with input from IFAS faculty and administration, prepared a set of recommended revisions that were presented to the Faculty Assembly as an informational item in April.
Please vote to ACCEPT or DECLINE these changes by July 15, 2014!

2013 State of the University
Dr. Machen gave his annual update on the State of the University at the first Faculty Senate meeting of the year. There was plenty of optimism as UF strives to achieve preeminence and “Top 10” status, and state financial support was allocated to achieve this goal. Online learning and development of programs for E-Campus is also a major focus as UF tries to reach out beyond the borders of Gainesville and its associated research centers.
Finally – a neat fact – the poet Robert Frost used to spend his winters in Gainesville. How many of us had to memorize that poem in Middle/High School English?
