Informed Osprey Program

The Informed Ospreys Program (IOP) provides foundational knowledge about important campus topics to our new Ospreys and offers ongoing educational opportunities to students interested in expanding their holistic development. The IOP allows students to earn their wings before they leave the nest.  

The Informed Ospreys Program offers a series of online modules to complete that can assist students to navigate certain challenges that come with being a first time in college student all the way through graduation and beyond. The transition into UNF, engaging with the campus community, and the transition from college life to the “real world” all come with their host of challenges. This program offers online trainings and on-campus events to help broaden the horizon of our students and allow them to think outside of the box.  

Each semester, UNF offers several events that fall under our Informed Ospreys Program. We do our best to partner with departments, groups, and organizations campus-wide to ensure that students have access to all the appropriate resources and that they are aware of all campus events. 

By completing the online modules and attending various events throughout each academic year, you will have the opportunity to EARN YOUR WINGS.
