Fall 2020 Welcome

Welcome to all of those who are new to the UWF community, and welcome back to our returning students. Please take a moment to read this important welcome back message from College of Education and Professional Studies Dean William Crawley.

This is a return to fall unlike any other. We encourage you to familarize yourself with the Returning to UWF Plan to learn important information about the health and safety of our community, available resources, Frequently Asked Questions, and much more. We are committed to working together to ensure a safe and productive learning environment for all.

Harrison Peters

Harrison Peters - BS in Elementary Education

After a family tragedy forced him to live with his Grandmother, Harrison Peters struggled to find his place in the world. Labeled a lost cause, one teacher saw the potential in him, and inspired Harrison to enroll at the University of West Florida. Now, he serves as Chief of Schools for Hillsborough County and works to impact kids the same way his teacher impacted him many years ago.
