UWF Founders Week

The University of West Florida broke ground in April 1965, and we’re still breaking ground today. Join us as we celebrate Founders Week this April, the same month our University began to take shape more than 50 years ago.


Celebrate Our Story

Founders Week is a weeklong celebration that serves as an opportunity to bring the UWF family together, welcome alumni and visitors to our campus and give back to the community.

It is our vision to be a spirited community of learners, launching the next generation of big thinkers who will change the world. We’re honoring the way our story started and the many ways we’re making our collective voices heard today.
