Join the Gator Nation


University of Florida

The University of Florida is on the threshold of greatness. As the state’s flagship university, we’re already considered one of the nation’s Top 15 public universities. But Gators are never satisfied with the status quo. We’ve embarked on a bold plan to rise in preeminence so we can better serve people across the globe — through discovery, sharing knowledge and outreach.

UF traces its roots to 1853, and in the decades since has emerged as one of the largest and most comprehensive research universities in the world. With 50,000 students, 16 colleges and more than 150 research centers and institutes, we’re among the most academically diverse. Although our main campus is in Gainesville, we have clinics and centers in all 67 of the state’s counties.

Office of Development and Alumni Affairs

The Office of Development and Alumni Affairs is tasked with raising funds to strengthen UF’s role as an economic engine and resource. Gators, foundations and corporations provide more than $200 million in private gifts each year to help UF meet its promise to the people we serve. We’re focused now on UF’s next great endeavor: an upcoming comprehensive campaign that will have a goal of more than $3 billion.

Our current team is over 300 strong, including more than 85 frontline fundraisers. We provide members of our team with:

  • A highly talented, success-driven, collaborative environment;
  • Comprehensive orientations and trainings;
  • Ongoing professional development and career advancement opportunities; and,
  • Integrated support with advancement services, alumni relations, development, talent management and communications all under one roof.

Total Compensation Package

We offer a competitive compensation package, with starting salary commensurate with experience and education. Our excellent benefits package includes: medical, life, LTD and dental insurance; tuition remission; a retirement plan with immediate vesting; generous paid time off with 22 vacation days per year, four personal leave days between Christmas and New Year’s Day and 10 paid holidays. The absence of state income tax is also a plus.

At the University of Florida there is no bond stronger than the one formed when you become a member of The Gator Nation. In every corner of the globe, Gators accomplish remarkable feats with innovative thinking and inspired collaboration. We have adopted the Gold Standard and that means we are committed to 'Being the Best' each day.
