Gators for Higher Education June 2012 Update

As we turn our focus to the 2013 legislative session, we wanted to share some key information about the University of Florida. Your voice has made a difference! We are counting on your support and involvement again this year.

Higher Education Update

In the 2013 legislative session, Higher Education will continue to be in the spotlight. There have been several committees formed to focus on the role of higher education in our state. Of note are the two listed below.

Florida Governor Rick Scott created the Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education to evaluate the states university system and suggest ideas for reform. Learn more here.

The Florida Board of Governors created the Commission on Florida Higher Education Access and Degree Attainment. Learn more here. Go to the committee website for agenda, meetings dates and more information.
