One of the highest priorities at the University of Florida is maintaining a warm and welcoming campus environment that not only allows everyone the right to be safe, but also to feel safe. Our goal is to cultivate campus environments that allow everyone at UF to safely study, live and work as they strive to reach their full potential. UF’s goal is ensuring that as a survivor of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, we may provide you with information regarding resources that can help you in your time of need. UF’s intention when a survivor of a VAWA crime comes forward is to initiate a process that ensures that we are able to provide a full institutional response.
