Welcome from the Vice President

Welcome Gators and Friends!

With 25+ departments dedicated to the Gator student experience, the Division of Student Life champions learning and development by strengthening the classroom environment through vibrant out-of-the-classroom experiences.

Uplifted by a talented team of staff, faculty and student employees, our commitment centers on the holistic care, support and engagement of all students. Our programs, initiatives and services directly impact student retention, graduation, institutional affinity, and career connections, advancing the university’s mission and rankings.

In Student Life, we create an expansive and immersive Gator student experience to support students as they build their foundation for their futures. We prepare our students to become skilled and purposeful scholars who lead in in their professions, in their communities and for each other. Being a Gator is about passion for discovery, bold leadership, working collaboratively and caring for others. Gators are difference-makers, and our students’ time in college should bring them joy and challenge them to grow.

On behalf of our 600+ dedicated team members, thank you for taking time to explore all the ways Student Life empowers, equips, and inspires students to engage, transform and thrive in an evolving global community. We are so excited for you to embark on your journey at Florida!

Go Gators!
