One of the highest priority goals for UF is to expand its international outlook and impact in education, research and service. UF’s leadership has placed a special emphasis on internationalization because it is a direct outgrowth of the university’s mission and reflects the importance of globalization in the world today. Our international students are a key element as we pursue these goals. While international students adjust to a different language, educational system and cultural environment, they also share with the University of Florida community their language, educational system and culture.
