UF's New President
The University of Florida welcomes Dr. Ben Sasse. A former U.S. Senator, Dr. Sasse is the 13th president of Florida’s flagship university.
On his first day, President Sasse wrote a letter to the UF community.
Education properly understood isn’t exclusively or even primarily about transmitting information. Education is about learning how to humbly and meaningfully engage with new ideas. We want Gators to engage ideas. I want our students to be challenged and to rejoice in the challenge. We want Gators to go out and serve Florida and the world. Let’s go out and build something great together.”
