UF Core Values

Our Shared Values

The University of Florida in 2015 adopted “The Decade Ahead” strategic plan comprising seven university wide goals and objectives and one overarching aspiration: That the University of Florida will be a premier university that the state, nation and world will look to for leadership.

In 2020, the university augmented the plan with the “UF Core Values” underpinning its goals and overarching aspiration with six central values. The values were shaped by input from all of UF’s key stakeholders to ensure they reflect the diverse UF community.
