Government Relations

The function of the Office of Government Relations is to serve the University community in securing funding and substantive legislation which enables the University of Florida to provide research, teaching, and service. This office works closely with government officials and their staffs at the federal, state, and local levels to advocate issues of importance to the university. The legislative priorities for the University are coordinated through the President’s Office for all of the university’s entities, including Health Affairs, the Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences, and general education.
