University of Florida President Delivers State of the University Address

By on August 28th, 2014

President Bernie Machen delivered the State of the University address earlier this afternoon.

Machen highlighted some of the university’s accomplishments in 2013-2014, which included the research contracts and grants reaching a new record of $702 million received, the signing of 50 preeminence faculty and the Florida Legislature naming UF as the leading research university in the state.

The president listed some goals for the coming year as well, one of them being to “seek top-ten status” among public universities.  He also asked that people strive for three things throughout the year.

“My charge to you for the coming year is 3-fold:  To keep the university moving in this strong direction, to help advance our commitment to excellence, and to further the research and teaching innovations that are driving UF.”
