Ideas & Resources for Life Balance
UF Advancement Operating Status
UF Advancement remains open and operational.
All employees should be transitioned to a remote work environment.

The following resources have been compiled to give UF Advancement employees ideas and resources as they navigate a new work-life balance. While these are largely focused on resources for parents whose children are out of school, we want your ideas! Do you have resources for supporting elderly parents who reside with you? Other ideas to add? Let us know by emailing

We are grateful to our colleagues at the University of Arizona for sharing some of these resources with us.
