UFHR Screening and Access to the Workplace

UF and UF Health are working together to provide as safe an environment as possible. These efforts include working with the State of Florida Department of Health as part of a contact tracing program. UF faculty, staff and students also will adopt protocols for appropriate physical distancing, hygiene and face coverings.

UF Health Screen, Test & Protect

The Screen, Test & Protect initiative uses public health guidance and best practices aimed at fostering a culture of care for our community while taking steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as the University of Florida gradually returns faculty, staff and students to the campus environment.

Our Plan Forward

Led by UF Health’s scientific and medical researchers, UF is implementing a plan to advance the success of our students, faculty and staff while prioritizing health and safety. This website is where you will find the details of that plan, including information for students & families, faculty & staff, and visitors.

Curtis Taylor

Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Campus Diversity Liaison

"When we talk about DEI, it’s really about creating and ensuring that we have an environment of working and learning where people feel like they belong and are included, and that their voices are heard. It’s also about ensuring that systems, policies, practices and resources—that all of these things are fair and done in a fair way. And it’s also about ensuring that the make up of our faculty, staff and students is representative of the demographics of the local and state communities."

Shannon Edwards

Director of University Benefits

“When you work in benefits, you’re working with employees at their most vulnerable times. There are the great highs, such as having a first child or the excitement of walking in the door about to retire, and lows, such as dealing with a diagnosis or a death. We’ve got employees at such a vulnerable time, and it’s gratifying to walk alongside them and help them.”
