UF Government Relations advocates for sustainability policy as it fits within the mission of the university.
Legislative Priorities for the 2010 legislative session include:
-Health Insurance for Graduate Students-$4.0M. Graduate students are integral to conducting research that results in important discoveries and generates new businesses that will help diversify the state’s economy. In order to help attract the brightest and best graduate students to UF, we must be competitive in wages and benefits with other major national research universities. UF is asking the Legislature for a recurring appropriation to cover the cost of insurance.
-IFAS Funding- $1.65M. The demands placed upon IFAS to support the agricultural and natural resources economy of Florida continues to grow. Furthermore, IFAS must increase research and extension efforts directed at difficult environmental issues in Florida. UF is asking for funding for the IFAS Workload Formula.
Through Gators for Higher Education is a partnership between Alumni Affairs and University Relations to involve alumni around the state in advocacy for UF.
