Dr. Martha D. Saunders shares her insights as University President through viewpoints, op-eds and podcast interviews.
UWF achieved a historic enrollment record this year with more than 14,000 students joining us this fall — our highest enrollment in 56 years. Read my latest viewpoint in the Pensacola News Journal on how UWF is shaping a diverse campus, focusing on student success and adding in-demand programs.
From its 30 properties serving residents, its public radio, its many school camps - and most importantly through its people - UWF is a vital partner.
College is a big investment of time and money and should not be undertaken lightly. And with a robust job market, why go to the bother? I can think of a few reasons.
With a new comprehensive master plan awaiting implementation, walkability is a front-and-center issue at UWF. I walk the Pensacola campus almost every day and find it gives me a greater appreciation for campus activity, traffic flow and the general mood of our students.
College is a great place to fall in love, and a lot of people do. Many meet their life partners on campus. Some researchers believe that people who meet in college make the absolute best married couples.
As we wrap up the last few days of 2022, I'm reminded of the days and months spent fulfilling our mission as a leading institution of higher learning. The University of West Florida continues to reach for the stars. We had record enrollment, record gifts, national recognitions and so much more. Read about all the recognitions and rewards that rolled in for #UWF in 2022 in my recent viewpoint in the Pensacola News Journal.
How do we ensure a climate of civility and inclusion on a university campus at a time when we seem to be so far apart as a nation? The subject means enough to us at UWF that we added it as a direction on our newly approved strategic plan.
Hometown universities bring many great things to a community, and the University of West Florida is no exception. You might be surprised to learn UWF’s contributions go far beyond educating students.
In 2017, UWF received a gift that perfectly reflects the hearts of two wonderful individuals – and the heart of the University of West Florida. Until now, the American Dream Scholarship Endowment donor has remained anonymous. Here is the rest of the story.
The COVID-19 pandemic taught us the importance of the flow of goods, and what can happen when industries around the world shut down. Now, more than ever, supply chain professionals are essential to help companies solve important logistics and supply chain problems.
