UF Advancement Operating Status
UF Advancement remains open and operational.
All employees should be transitioned to a remote work environment.

UF Advancement has created an image for our team to use as a Zoom "Virtual Background," which allows users to hide their existing room/office background during a Zoom meeting and display a UF image in its place. The following instructions are provided by Zoom for enabling this feature and uploading the custom image. Before you begin, please download one of the UF Advancement images below and save it to your computer:
