The challenge of UF Preeminence began in 2013 with the University of Florida’s designation by the Florida Legislature as the state’s preeminent institution and grew into an opportunity to achieve national and international recognition for our work in serving students and the world.
UF has become the first Florida school to break into the list of top 10 best public universities, rising to No. 5, according to the 2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings.
UF is the state’s oldest and most comprehensive university. A member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, UF attracts outstanding students from the state, the nation, and the world.
