The University of Florida’s Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer has announced it will award more than $300,000 in research awards to seven UF-City of Gainesville research projects.
UF has launched a new video about its Strategic Development Plan, collaborating with the city and exploring the concept of the New American City.
UF’s Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer recently announced it is seeking proposals from faculty for research projects that utilize the campus and greater Gainesville community as a living laboratory to address real-world problems in our local community.
The plan recommends four initiatives for UF and the community to focus on when crafting the future of the university and city.
“University Towns: Perspective on strategic development planning” was held in the Presidents Ballroom at Emerson Alumni Hall and featured a diverse panel of speakers from the public and private sectors.
On Aug. 31, the University of Florida will host a symposium to explore how cities and universities across the country have worked together to implement plans similar to UF’s Strategic Development Plan.
