The University of Florida, a world-class research institution, fosters an environment where divergent ideas, opinions, and philosophies, new and old, can be rigorously discussed and critically evaluated.

Our commitment to these protections, however, runs deeper than any legal requirement. At its core, UF strives for academic excellence and inclusiveness which could not be achieved without adhering completely to First Amendment principles. Read the full statement here.
