Gator Innovators: The Innovation Academy Employers are always looking for creative individuals who aren’t afraid of the unknown. UF’s Innovation Academy (IA) prepares students to thrive in an innovative culture. This distinctive program brings together students from 30 majors, leading to a convergence of original ideas centered on innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship, ethics and leadership. IA students can join the Living Learning Community Ignite in Beaty Towers, a UF residence hall. IA operates on a spring-summer schedule, giving students the fall semester to pursue internships, study abroad, research and other opportunities. Innovationacademy.ufl.edu
ABBY JONES Education Sciences Class of 2022
Innovation Academy is for a student who truly wants to leave college with more than a diploma, to invest in their education and learn life skills that are applicable in today’s world. Aside from the tangible skills, you will learn more about yourself as a student than ever before. IA is made for students who want to be confident in their ability to work in any environment. Professions are not stagnant, meaning the job you want today could be different by the time you are actually in the position. Having the skills to grow, adapt and make changes can make that job much more rewarding. Overall, IA has taught me to invest in what I am learning, even if I can’t see the implications of my newfound knowledge on a topic right away.
Flexibility and Value:
Pathway to Campus Enrollment (PaCE) PaCE students don’t just log in to classes. They are fully plugged in to The Gator Nation and all it has to offer. PaCE offers a blended learning model in which freshmen start their degree through our top-ranked UF Online program and then transition to campus to complete their undergraduate degree. PaCE students can choose from 60 majors in some of today’s most in-demand disciplines and earn a UF degree through a flexible, supportive program. Applicants are reviewed for admission to PaCE by selected major, and only applicants who select a designated major (see inside back cover) will be considered for the program. Students admitted to PaCE will complete a minimum of 15 credit hours and two semesters through UF Online. PaCE students can transition to campus after completing a total of 60 credit hours and all prerequisite courses for their major. admissions.ufl.edu/learn/pace

MENTORS UF faculty are at the top of their fields, leading the national conversations around today’s most pressing issues. They are just as dedicated to fostering the collaborative environment that transforms potential into actual results – developing UF students into the researchers and leaders of the future. And with a student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to form enduring connections.
Real-World Relevance Chemical Engineering professor Piyush Jain and graduate student Long Nguyen have developed a platform for at-home testing to detect prostate cancer, HIV, hepatitis C and the novel coronavirus. The coronavirus test has shown significantly higher sensitivity compared to other detection technologies and is moving into human sample testing and clinical trials. Professor of Anesthesiology Samsun Lampotang and a team of UF researchers have developed a ventilator that can be made using items from a hardware store. Dr. Lampotang, an inventor with 43 patents belonging to UF, has made the plans “open source” to be easily accessible by anyone. In the future, he hopes that the ventilator will be repurposed for use in underdeveloped countries.

HISTORY PROFESSOR JACK DAVIS joined the UF faculty in 2003. In 2004, he founded the Department of History’s student journal, Alpata: A Journal of History, and continues to be its faculty advisor. His most recent book, “The Gulf,” won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in History. “I wanted to restore [the Gulf of Mexico], to show people that it is more than an oil spill. It’s got a rich, natural history connected to Americans and it’s not integrated into the larger American historical narrative. That’s a wrong I wanted to correct.”

HE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IS NOT “T PURSUING A SPECIFIC PLACE IN THE PECKING ORDER OF PEERS. WE ARE, INSTEAD, STRIVING FOR SOMETHING MUCH MORE IMPORTANT. WE ARE AIMING TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD.
The UF neuroscientist priming the human immune system to combat malignant tumors isn’t worried about rankings. He is developing effective treatments for people everywhere battling cancer. The computer engineer developing the next generation of high-speed computers isn’t doing so simply to increase the number of times his papers are cited in academic journals, but to help preserve biodiversity. And the education professor studying bilingual education isn’t in it to win awards, but to ensure that teachers have the tools to help immigrant children succeed in the classroom. The goal of the University of Florida is to create new and useful knowledge for humankind, and to train a generation of leaders committed to improving life for people near and far, in times and seasons well beyond our limited horizons.” - DR.
