Strategic Priorities

At the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, we are Powering the New Engineer to Transform the Future. We are guiding New Engineers — collaborative, innovative leaders — to work in research areas that have the greatest potential to effect transformational change. Many of the strategic priorities that we set for our college are also identified as UF Preeminence Initiative focus areas. They are at the heart of campus-wide interdisciplinary collaborations:

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
