As one of the world’s most far-reaching universities, UF’s programs touch almost all aspects of our lives: from health and recreation, to finances and food. The university has a number of signature programs that distinguish it from other universities. A few of them are the College of Education’s Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies that’s giving children the foundation to reach their life potential; the interdisciplinary Biodiversity Institute that’s helping communities and governments prepare for a changing environment; and the Challenge 2050 Project, an initiative to solve the world’s looming food shortage by 2050 when scientists predict the Earth will no longer provide enough food for its population.

Philanthropists who support UF’s programs feed ingenuity and exploration, bring ideas to life and imagination to fruition. Their partnership enables UF to discover, cure, invent and deliver life-transforming marvels.
