Who Are UF Faculty?
Florida has 5,000 distinguished faculty members with outstanding reputations for their teaching, research and service. In 2010-2011 the faculty attracted over $600 million in research and training grants to the university.
Florida has more than 50 Eminent Scholar Chairs, positions funded at more than $1 million each to attract nationally and internationally recognized scholars. A variety of other endowed professorships help attract prominent faculty. More than two dozen faculty are members of the National Academies of Science and/or Engineering, the Institute of Medicine or a counterpart in another nation.
The Registrar’s Office, which maintains students’ academic records, publishes the Undergraduate Catalog and the Graduate Catalog, which are supplemented by the Course Schedule. The Registrar also sets the Critical Dates by Term and maintains ISIS, the academic computer system used by students, faculty and advisors.
