Campus Conversations

As Argonauts, we value and celebrate the unique characteristics of each member of our community. Each semester we host conversations around topics of civility and inclusion to reflect and discuss what we can do together to positively impact our campus community and our greater society, including ways to create and sustain the kind of community where we all feel welcomed and supported.

The Global Block Party celebrates the faculty, staff and students who make up our diverse community here at UWF. This event is FREE and open to the public. Join us to experience international food, music, performers and displays from culturally-based organizations from the UWF and Pensacola community.
