Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s merely the beginning. As a Gator you’ll learn to see beyond the horizon. We measure success not in individual achievement, but where you go from there. Because when reaching your goals is just the starting point, there’s no end to what Gators can accomplish.

Faculty: Ravi Srinivasan

College of Design, Construction & Planning
Assistant Professor

Ravi Srinivasan is creating virtual environments to help better protect our own. Combining cutting-edge research from a variety of disciplines, he’s developing simulations and models to aid in the construction of net zero campuses and cities. With these advanced technologies, architects and engineers are better equipped to design more efficient and sustainable buildings. For you and me that means reduced energy bills, emissions and our environmental impact.

Jacob Atem was one of thousands of orphan boys escaping civil strife in Sudan during the 1990s. They were known as “The Lost Boys.” Today, he is president of the Southern Sudan Healthcare Organization, which he co-founded in 2008 to foster the improvement of health care and education in his native country.
