We are Gators, empowered to do our best work and be our best selves.
We advance Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access in the service of our mission.
Gators Engage, Challenge and Inspire in the relentless pursuit of Excellence
We believe Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA*) are keystone habits that enable us to deliver the best possible educational experience and are critical to our research excellence. IDEA taps our creativity, drives high performing teams and creates measurable impacts and outcomes for our students, staff, faculty and the communities we serve.
Create an educational and work environment where all feel a sense of belonging, invite dialogue from diverse perspectives in the service of our educational mission, ensure equitable access to resources and opportunities needed to succeed and take personal responsibility for making positive changes happen

* IDEA refers to the renaming of DEI to Inclusion, Diversity, Equality and Access. It provides us with alignment with HR as well as a “stickier” moniker than DEI.
