From the President

This spring I’ll attend my last commencement as president of the University of North Florida. For our students, faculty and staff, the ceremony represents the culmination of everyone’s work at UNF, and it is indeed the reason we are all here. It’s humbling to have played even a small role in the lives of these graduates, and in the lives of the 60,000 who have graduated during my time at UNF.
