Student Achievement at UNF is our main focus at PORL

UNF students are the backbone to the center's success, and the reason why PORL has grown over the years. Celebrating our student employee accomplishments and providing them with a learning environment that promotes personal development and real life work experience is how PORL is meeting UNF's and the State University System's Strategic Plan. Not only does PORL provide financial support for students across campus, but also an inspiring setting for our student-employee community.


The diverse make up of our center's workforce, working together to accomplish project goals,

promoting critical thinking, effective communication, and analytical skills are just some of the ways PORL is preparing UNF students for life after college. 

PORL student employees are also gaining a transformational learning experience.
