UF statement on pause of West Palm Beach campus

Following inquiries about the status of the University of Florida's exploration of a possible graduate campus in West Palm Beach, the University of Florida issued the following statement.

"Given some regrettable divisions in the local community, the University of Florida is pausing deliberation about a possible West Palm Beach campus. As Florida's flagship university and a land-grant institution, UF is committed to being a unifying presence throughout the state and does not want to divide communities we aim to serve. The university has an obligation to the public to take a fresh look at any possible South Florida graduate campus. Discussions about the feasibility of a West Palm Beach project will now be folded into our larger, six-month strategic review of UF's programmatic priorities and opportunities."
