About Us

University of Florida News is a resource for discovering stories of national and international interest about the university’s research, faculty, students and programs.

Our stories aim to spark conversations across media and platforms about UF’s contributions to societal and environmental good. We help our audiences — ranging from faculty and students to journalists and legislators — find new research and learn about the real people making novel discoveries that improve our lives and the world around us.

By focusing our coverage on key areas of expertise, including neuroscience, biodiversity and sustainability, we introduce audiences to world-class research they cannot find anywhere else. Our work with communicators and storytellers across campus and the nation follows strategies designed to enhance UF’s reputation as a land-, sea- and space-grant university.
