About Us

We advocate the University's positions on higher education funding and other issues to our state elected officials. By emailing, calling, writing or meeting with our legislators, we communicate the importance of UF's educational, research and community service missions to the state and to us personally.

Through our team effort, we tell the UF story and generate support for Florida's Flagship University.

Gators for Higher Education, G4HE, is a project of UF Government Relations in partnership with the UF Alumni Association.
