Welcome From the Vice President

The Division of Academic Engagement and Student Affairs at the University of West Florida is here to support students' academic, social and professional success. We want to see students earn their degrees in four years and we provide tools and support services to help them reach their educational and professional goals.

We encourage students to get engaged on campus by joining organizations and attending events and activities that will allow them to expand their networks. UWF students have the opportunity to learn and expand through High Impact Learning opportunities. Whether they want to explore the world in a study abroad program, practice professional skills in a realistic environment, participate in the Honors program or conduct research, we can help them identify opportunities.

Awareness, Acceptance and Respect are a way of life on our campus. We have programs to educate our community on cultural competence. We also have programs to assist students who may be at risk. Our goal as a university is to provide a welcoming environment for all on our campus and in our community.

We want our graduates to make a splash when they enter the workforce.
