Welcome to the University of Florida Faculty Senate! I am honored to serve as your 2018-2019 chair.
In 1906, when the University of Florida moved to Gainesville, there were 13 members of the faculty. Today, we are fortunate to have 5,000 faculty members contributing to a mission of excellence in education and research. Shared governance is key to this mission. Administrators and faculty members must work together to make shared decisions that positively influence productivity, welfare, and success. Evidence-based best practices of shared governance suggest that those who participate should feel empowered. As such, I hope to empower each of you when we work together, making decisions for our campus community.
Faculty at the University of Florida will change the future of our state, our nation, and the world.
Thank you for your service and interest in the Senate.
Katie Vogel Anderson, Pharm.D., BCACP
