UF Academy

The UF Academy was created for emerging leaders at UF. Designed for exempt employees up to and including the director level, as well as interested faculty, the UF Academy prepares employees for higher-level responsibilities at the University of Florida.

The program is open to exempt employees (up to and including employees at the director level) with at least two years of supervisory or decision-making responsibility at UF or in a faculty position. The two-year supervisory requirement is waived for interested faculty as well as employees at the assistant director level or above. There is a $500 fee to participate.

A call for applications for the 2016-17 UF Leadership Development programs sponsored by UF Training and Organizational Development and the Office of Human Resource Services is now underway, with an application deadline of April 30. Apply today for the UF Academy—the university’s emerging leader program—or the Advanced Leadership for Academics and Professionals (ALAP) program. Participants in both programs, which will begin in the fall of 2016, are selected via a competitive application process.
