President's Message

DelaneyUNF’s course to greatness is guided by our commitments to excellence, focus, relevance and accountability. UNF’s commitment to excellence begins with our responsibility to our students, who deserve nothing less. It also recognizes that the cultural, economic and civic development of this region is linked directly to UNF’s development. In seeking excellence, we know that UNF must first identify academic and professional areas of strategic importance, bringing us to our commitment to focus.

This focus can be found in the high-quality learning experiences available to UNF students and to the development of flagship programs where UNF can assume national leadership. UNF’s commitment to relevance mandates using civic engagement and research to address and answer community challenges. Finally, our commitment to accountability is based on an understanding that we owe our students and taxpayers a complete accounting of how their investments in UNF yield remarkable dividends.

Using these four commitments, UNF is on the road to greatness, and the best part of our journey is yet to come.
