Preeminence Plan -  The  Florida Board of Governors approved the Preeminence Plan in November 2013. UF is now able to hire faculty all-stars who can help the school achieve recognition as one of the nation’s top-ranked public research universities. The UF Preeminence Plan calls for spending $15 million in funding from the Legislature on new talent in life sciences, massive data, cybersecurity, Latin American development and other fields where a few more top minds can advance UF’s standing as a national leader. The state funding complements a drive by the University of Florida Foundation, UF’s private fundraising arm, to raise additional funding to assemble the faculty, students, buildings and academic initiatives necessary to improve on the measures of success used by so many ranking systems.
