Power of the People

Each year the University of North Florida brings talented students to Jacksonville, and provides residents with access to higher education. In addition, the University brings talented and resourceful faculty members to Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region. These faculty members not only teach and provide scholarly recognition to the University; they also enrich the life of Northeast Florida.

UNF contributes to the intellectual and social capital through its own community of students, faculty, alumni, and through our programming and global perspective.

Nationally Ranked

The University of North Florida continues to appear in The Princeton Review's annual rankings. In 2007, UNF was named one of the nation's best value undergraduate institutions and a 2008 Best Southeastern College. Only 146 colleges and universities in the Southeast received that designation. In addition, the Coggin College of Business once again ranked as an outstanding business school in The Princeton Review's Best 290 Business Schools. Our students bring national recognition to the University as well. UNF SIFE, or Students in Free Enterprise, ranked 16th in the nation at the National Exposition. UNF has also had three students recognized as Truman Scholars, a prestigious national scholarship that provides funds for recipients to attend a graduate program that prepares them for a public service career.
