University of North Florida
|President:||Mr. John Delaney|
The University of North Florida’s tagline, "No One Like You. No Place Like This" reflects the university’s commitment to students. This commitment shines in the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team who won the regional championship for the 10th year in a row; in the performance by the first American university jazz trio to appear at the prestigious Festival Les Rendez-vous de l’Erdre, Jazz et Belle Plaisance in Nantes, France; and in the selection of the Building Construction Management AGC student chapter as the 2007 Chapter of the Year and the chapter president as the Student of the Year.
Situated in Jacksonville between downtown and the beaches, UNF was established in 1969. The 1,000 acre University of North Florida opened for classes in 1972 with 2,027 students to nearly 17,000 students today. UNF offers colleges of distinction in Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Health, and in Computing, Engineering and Construction, and a selection of degree programs from 52 undergraduate degree programs with 132 areas of concentration, 25 graduate, and 3 doctoral degree programs.
In 2008, UNF was named by The Princeton Review as a Best Southeastern College and included the university one of the nation's best value undergraduate institution.
